SpaceX launches four astronauts to International Space Station******


SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket with the Crew Dragon spacecraft lifts off with four astronauts on board from launch pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center on November 10, 2021, in Cape Canaveral, Florida.。

After a series of delays, Elon Musk's private company SpaceX launched four astronauts to the International Space Station on Wednesday night on the "Crew-3" mission.。

The orbital outpost is currently operating with just one NASA astronaut in the US segment to welcome the incoming crew, after the astronauts of the earlier Crew-2 mission splashed down in the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday night.。

Crew-3's Raja Chari, Kayla Barron and Tom Marshburn of the United States and Matthias Maurer of Germany blasted off aboard a Crew Dragon capsule fixed to a Falcon 9 rocket at 9:03pm local time (2:03am GMT on Thursday) from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The launch was greeted by applause in the SpaceX control room.。

The spaceship, called Endurance, will dock with the ISS at 7:10pm on Thursday (0:10am GMT on Friday).。

NASA associate administrator and former astronaut Bob Cabana described the launch as "fantastic."

"I think it's an amazing time for America's space program. We are definitely at an inflection point," he added.。

The flight was initially postponed from October 31 first for weather, then a "minor medical issue" affecting one of the crew. NASA did not say who it was but said it was not COVID-19 related.。

'American ingenuity'

Chari, a US Air Force colonel, is commanding the mission and making his first trip to space, along with Barron and Maurer.。

Marshburn, a medical doctor, flew aboard a Space Shuttle in 2009 and a Russian Soyuz spacecraft in a mission from 2012-13.。

Barron, who along with Chari was selected for the NASA astronaut corps in 2017, the most recent recruitment, previously served as a submarine warfare officer for the Navy, while Maurer, a materials science engineer, will become the 12th German in the cosmos.。

Crew-3 is part of NASA's multibillion-dollar partnership with SpaceX that it signed after ending the Space Shuttle program in 2011 and aims to restore US capacity to carry out human spaceflight.。

NASA chief Bill Nelson said on Twitter he had attended the launch.。

"We're seeing the power of American ingenuity right before our eyes," he wrote after the rocket took off, hailing the NASA-SpaceX partnership.。

"Godspeed, Crew-3 – I can't wait to see all that you accomplish!"

The quartet will spend six months on the orbital outpost and conduct research to help inform future deep space exploration and benefit life on Earth.。

Scientific highlights of the mission include an experiment to grow plants in space without soil or other growth media, and another to build optical fibers in microgravity, which prior research has suggested will be superior in quality to those made on Earth.。

The Crew-3 astronauts will also conduct spacewalks to complete an upgrade of the station's solar panels and will be present for two tourism missions, including Japanese visitors aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft at the end of the year and the Space-X Axiom crew, set for launch in February 2022.。

Countdown to Beijing 2022******

BEIJING, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- Dozens of villagers from Yanqing District, about 74 km away from downtown Beijing, gathered at a local indoor skiing resort for a three-hour daily practise - a routine that has been going on for more than five months.

They are members of the Haituo farmer ski team formed on July 11, 2017, and most of them were born in Zhangshanying Township, administered by Yanqing. Over the last four years, their commitment to popularizing winter sports has never wavered.

"There were only 18 members when we set up the team, but now the number has increased to nearly one hundred," said Lang Enge, a 32-year-old leader of the ski team. "It is my responsibility to lead this team to embark on a professional path in a long run."

Lang, though still young, has already become an "old captain" of the farmer ski team. "Our members used to be fruit farmers, second-hand car sellers and temporary workers, and I was a shepherd. It was the Winter Olympics that brought us together, so we should seize this opportunity," Lang said.

The name "Haituo" comes from the Haituo Mountain north of Zhangshanying Township in the Yanqing competition zone of Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games, which has changed the lives of local residents.

"We just played for fun on ice and snow before, but now we have undertaken professional ski training with just one goal - getting a national ski instructor and referee's certificate. The Winter Olympics will spur the development of winter sports, and we can lead the public to get more involved," Lang said.

Up to now, more than half the team members have obtained this certificate, and Lang also received his international ski instructor certificate. The team has voluntarily trained more than 12,000 people since 2017.

"From three years old to over fifty, our trainees come from all walks of life, and we endeavor to help them find joy on snow," Lang said.

In recent years, many schools in Yanqing have provided opportunities for students to experience winter sports five times a year - three on snow and two on ice. Lang and his team also introduce ski equipment and safety measures to students on campus. "We make them prepared for safe skiing," Lang added.

"Yanqing is one of the three competition zones of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, and I hope to make my due contribution as a ski instructor born here. I will also try my best to lead more members of the Haituo farmer ski team to find employment on snow, enabling more people to enjoy winter sports, which is our mission and a great privilege," Lang said.

Feature: Chinese companies help Cuba develop table tennis******

by Yosley Carrero。

HAVANA, Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- Cuban table tennis players have benefited from sports equipment donated by Chinese companies over the past few years.。

Among them is Shely Delgado, who won the women's singles gold medal at the National Tennis Championship in 2019.。

The 22-year-old is now training hard at Cerro Pelado center for elite athletes in Havana ahead of a regional competition slated to take place on the island next year.。

"The quality of the Chinese equipment are very high," she said, adding that "our conditions for training have very much improved."

The donation included rackets, balls, tables, nets as well as footwear and clothing.。

Angel Antonio Rodriguez, secretary of the Cuban Table Tennis Federation, said that the Chinese companies have not only helped Cuba with the donation of the state-of-the-art equipment but with field training in China.。

"Chinese table tennis players are a global reference for us. There are many things that we can learn from them," he said.。

Cuba's national table tennis team resumed training in September after an 18-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.。

Among its members is 18-year-old Adrian Perez, who will participate in a tournament in Venezuela in the coming weeks.。

"I am back in action trying to get in good shape," he said. "We want to be part of the table tennis' takeoff on the island."

In the past few years, Cuban table tennis players have excelled in the 2018 Barranquilla Central American and Caribbean Games and Lima 2019 Pan American Games.。

In addition, two Cuban table tennis players qualified for the Tokyo Olympics held in 2021.。

Yang Longchuan, chief of the Beijing North Star in Cuba, told Xinhua that the Chinese company has been a partner of Cuba's Institute of Sports, Physical Education, and Recreation for many years.。

"Taking the Cuban athletes to China is aimed to enhance their skills through face-to-face exchanges with the Chinese athletes, and therefore achieve better results in further competitions," Yang said. Enditem。
