The Shenzhou 10 spacecraft, a planned Chinese manned spaceflight, has been taken to the Jiuquan Satellite Launching Center.

The spaceship was split into three parts and taken to the airport by trucks. Workers say, although the route was planned, the trucks stopped three times for checks.

At the airport, two flights carried the parts to Jiuquan. Shenzhou 10 is scheduled to launch between June and August. It will carry a crew of three astronauts to dock with Tiangong 1 module, which was launched in September, 2011.
