The head of China's manned space program Zhang Youxia says the Shenzhou-11 manned space mission was a success following the safe landing of the re-entry capsule on Friday. The capsule landed in northern China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region at 2:07 PM Beijing time.

The two astronauts, Jing Haipeng and Chen Dong, are reportedly in good condition. Their 33-day mission sets a new record in China's manned space program. They've stayed in space on a single mission longer than any of the country's other astronauts. This is China's sixth manned space mission and comes 13 years after China first sent astronaut Yang Liwei into space.
