The astronauts were then carried out of the capsule and will be transferred to medical-support vans for further examinations.

The Shenzhou XVII spacecraft departed from the Tiangong station at 8:43 am on Tuesday and then started the atmospheric reentry procedure.

Before setting out on their return trip, the Shenzhou XVII team handed over their work to the Shenzhou XVIII crew and sorted and transferred materials between the station and their spaceship.
