Yang Liwei at the International Astronautical Congress 2004 in Vancouver, B.C.

Mr. Yang Liwei and Professor Zhou Jianping appeared at an early-morning session on 6 October 2004,

The presentation covered the SZ-5 flight and future plans for EVA and a space station. An interesting map that I was able to catch with my camera showed rescue zones during launch and the recovery area. Click on the map to see a larger version. Yang Liwei did not speak but signed his autograph on a brochure about the Shenzhou program that all attending were given.
