Space technology fever heated up on Sunday as the Shenzhou IX astronauts disclosed more details of June's manned space docking to a group of university students.

Some 500 students from different colleges in the city filled an auditorium at the Chinese University of Hong Kong on Sunday afternoon for a face-to-face meeting with the three astronauts, Jing Haipeng, Liu Wang and Liu Yang.

The astronauts answered questions about complicated rendezvous, docking technologies and space life. In a surprise twist, students were also tested by the astronauts.
