Chinese astronaut completes EVA

Congratulations to Chinese astronaut Zhai Zhigan. On what was only his nation's third human space flight, he became the first Chinese to "walk in space." He was outside the Shenzhou 7 spacecraft for 18 minutes, during which he released a nanosatellite and waved a small Chinese flag to a national audience watching in his homeland.
