No matter how grand and flying the imagination, there can always be traces in reality. When I sat in a movie theatre and felt the Chinese-style science fiction of “Take the Earth to Wander”, the value choices and wisdom presented there had a surprisingly similar core of thought to the space story told by China’s first Takionaut Yang Liwei. . I don’t know if you are as curious as I am, what has Yang Liwei been doing for the past 20 years after completing the mission of Shenzhou Five? During the 21 hours of his space roaming, what details we don’t know? In his eyes, what is the biggest change in the 30 years of manned spaceflight? Look for the answer in #张扬Dialogue
