China to put a woman in space by 2010
China will put its first woman in space within five years and has selected around 30 women pilots to be trained as astronauts, state media reported Tuesday.
Hu Shixiang, deputy chief commander of China's manned space program, said some of the women will embark on a space mission no later than 2010, working as flight commanders or on-board engineers, according to the China Daily.
