THIS IS CHINA'S FIRST FEMALE ASTRONAUT. Her name is Li Yang, and she will be on board Chenzhou 9. Can you see their Space suits are lighter and look more "modern" ? The Space suits the USA are using are the same bulky things they used 50 years ago, and still made of cloth. Of course, there is something to say for: "If it works, don't fix it" - and the USA have never had an inflight malfunction except for one when the cooling system failed.
