Astronauts in medical isolation
www.chinaview.cn 2005-10-18 13:56:33

    BEIJING, Oct. 18 -- Following their five days in space, the two Chinese astronauts have been admitted to an isolation ward. They'll stay there for up to two weeks, for comprehensive medical check-ups.

    Authorities say the isolation will protect them from contracting infectious diseases, while allowing them to readjust to the Earth's gravity and regain fitness.

    The re-entry capsule of the Shenzhou 6 spacecraft is now on its way from Inner Mongolia to Beijing. It's expected to arrive in the national capital on Tuesday afternoon, after 18 hours on a train.
