In video released from Chinese national news media, the world gets to share in the excitement of China's first spacewalk. With all the pomp and ceremony befitting such an auspicious occasion, we witness the astronauts exiting their spacecraft and waving the flag of China in celebration of their achievement. This makes China the third nation in the world to launch astronauts into space and perform extra-vehicular activity.

As part of a long-term plan for China to land humans on the moon, today's spacewalk clears the way for additional development on the technology and the spacecraft that will bring them there.
