China: Shenzhou-10 rocket travels to launch centre by train.

Summary: China's Shenzhou-10 Mission rocket heads to the launch centre by train.

China's new manned spacecraft Shenzhou-10 will travel from Beijing to Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre in northwest China's Gansu Province by train.

Staff members escorting the rocket will give them checks three times a day through windows designed for the task.

It will take four days for the spaceship to arrive in the launch centre as the train has to run at a limited speed of 80 kilometers per hour.

The Shenzhou-10 is scheduled to blast off in early June.
