Three Chinese astronauts landed safely in the Northern Inner Mongolia region Sunday, following a 68-hour voyage aboard the Shenzhou VII vessel.

The mission – deemed by all state accounts a success – reaffirmed China’s intent on expanding its space programme. Shenzhou VII is also a crucial step toward eventually assembling a space lab, and a space station, with the eventual goal of a moon landing.

Below is the video of the astronauts’ time in space (note the flag-waving).
