Chinese astronaut Jing Haipeng held an online exchange with university students from China and Switzerland on Thursday, as part of a Sino-Swiss space science meeting aiming to boost cooperation. Jing Haipeng, head of the Astronaut Corps and deputy director of China’s manned space program’s astronaut system, was the first Chinese astronaut to have undertaken three separate space missions in crewed spacecrafts Shenzhou 7, Shenzhou 9 and Shenzhou 11. Former Swiss astronaut Claude Nicollier have also shared his ideas in this meeting. Claude was the first Swiss astronaut to have flown on four space shuttle missions, including two servicing missions to the Hubble Space Telescope. The two shared their experience in space flight and talked about their understanding and feelings of space exploration, unveiling the mystery of space flight and cosmic exploration for the participants. They also shared their impressive missions and space experiments while interacting with Chinese and Swiss university students, inspiring and motivating young students to take passion in science, pursue their dreams and explore the unknown. The interaction was part of the Sino-Swiss space science and technology cooperation online meeting, which was co-sponsored by China science and technology exchange center and the Swiss museum of transport, and gathered more than 100 participants from universities, research institutions and exchange promotion agencies from both countries.
