Shenzhou XIV crew entered Tiangong space station's core module, Tianhe at 8:50 pm Sunday (Beijing Time), according to the China Manned Space Agency (CMSA).

China's Shenzhou XIV crewed spaceship successfully docked with the combination of the space station core module Tianhe, the Tianzhou 3 cargo craft and the Tianzhou 4 cargo craft at 5:42 pm Sunday (Beijing Time).

The spaceship, launched on Sunday morning, conducted a fast automated rendezvous and docking with the radial port of the Tianhe module after autonomously changing its orbit for six times, said the CMSA.

The whole process took approximately 7 hours, the CMSA said.

Three astronauts aboard Shenzhou XIV -- Chen Dong, Liu Yang and Cai Xuzhe -- entered the Tianhe module as planned.
