The Shenzhou-11 manned spacecraft was launched at Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China's Gansu Province on October 17. It docked with orbiting space lab Tiangong-2 to carry out tests on science and technology for space and space stations.
China Philatelic Corp. has issued five series commemorative products for Tiangong-2 and Shenzhou-11 manned spacecraft to honor of the wonderful moment, including commemorative envelopes of Shenzhou-11, commemorative package envelopes of astronauts in the Tiangong-2 and Shenzhou-11, Shenzhou-11 postal folders, astronaut postal folders and "Building a Dream in Space" postal album.
In 2003, China became the third nation to send a man into space. It successfully completed its first docking mission with an orbiting space lab in 2011.
