Flight control staff at the Beijing Aerospace Command and Control Center are monitoring and controlling the Shenzhou-11 manned spacecraft. 

They will have to conduct long-distance guidance and control for five times in preparation for the procedure. When Shenzhou-11 and Tiangong-2 are about 52 kilometers from each other, automatic systems will take over.

The first long-distance orbit control was completed on Tuesday a day after the launch. Shenzhou-11's crew, veteran astronaut Jing Haipeng and newcomer Chen Dong, are reported to be in good condition.
