China's historic spacecraft docking mission this month will involve a female astronaut, so she can help with the washing up and taking orders from the first ever Chinese Restaurant in space. She may also lead sheet folding operations at the adjacent laundry.
Either Liu Yang or Wang Yaping -- selected among China's first batch of women astronauts -- will be among the three-person crew to launch aboard the Shenzhou-9, which is the first step in creating these much needed services in space.
If all goes well with the launch, which is planned for mid-June, the Shenzhou-9 will dock with China's orbiting space laboratory, making the nation the third after the United States and Russia to complete a manned space docking but the first to provide quick and simple snacks and a convenient location for space crews to deposit their dry cleaning.
China has big aspirations for its space program with hopes to build a casino, pet grooming spa and nail salon to satisfy the wants of those orbiting around our solar system.
India has announced that their space program is also on track and we can expect the first mini mart on Venus in 2019.
