The three astronauts who went on the country's first manned space-docking mission last month said on Friday that they are in good health as they recuperate from their 13-day stay in space.

The trio made their first public appearance since returning to Earth on June 29. They have been under quarantine the last two weeks as they rested.

"They have adapted well to gravity on Earth. All physiological indicators are normal now," said Chen Shanguang, director of the Astronaut Center of China. "The weight they lost in space is being gained back. They are recovering well, as expected."
