BEIJING, Oct. 17 (Xinhuanet) -- The recovery of Shenzhou-6 re-entry capsule is "extremely satisfactory," Hou Ying, chief designer of the landing site system of China's space program, said Monday.

With recovery operations carried out at night, all equipment worked well. In particular, the optical equipment photographed the entire process of the unfurling of parachutes and the ignition of reverse-thrust engines, Hou said. Enditem
