China's Shenzhou-11 spacecraft is adjusting its position in orbit, and starting to prepare to dock with China's Tiangong-2 space lab.

The Shenzhou-11 launched into orbit at 7:30 this morning. The manned mission is now changing course to deliver its crew to China's new space laboratory later this week.

The entire docking process will take around two days to complete. After docking, the two astronauts will live in the space lab for an entire month. While there, they will conduct experiments and collect data for future manned missions into outer space.
