BEIJING, June 25 (Xinhua) -- China's Shenzhou-10 spacecraft will return to Earth at about 8:00 a.m. Wednesday as scheduled, with its main landing site set for north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

According to sources at the site in central Inner Mongolia, local weather conditions during the spacecraft's return are expected to meet landing requirements.

Various facilities at the site are currently operating well and are capable of performing search and recovery work after the landing, the sources said, adding that the plan has been repeatedly optimized based on multiple drills since mid-May.

The spacecraft was launched on June 11 with three astronauts on board.
