Yang Liwei’s face was full of blood when he stepped out Shenzhou capsule


If you’ve read about the China’s first manned mission, you for sure have seen one of the photos above in which the first Chinese astronaut (hangtianyuan) Yang Liwei stepped out Shenzhou 5 capsule himself. They were taken by Xinhua News Agency photographer Wang Jianmin (王建民). A recent web document shows that these photos were not taken real time (the link in this web document is broken already but there are duplicates elsewhere). An English translation is “Xia Lin (夏林), Xinhua Deputy Chief Editor, Reveals Secret Details of Old News Stories“.

The author of this document lives in Tianjin and is a co-author of web blog LeNengBa. According to this document, the associate chief editor (副总编) of Xinhua News Agency (新华社), senior journalist Xia Lin (夏林) visited “our” school and gave a presentation. He said that Yang Liwei’s face was full of blood when he opened the door on the capsule. Later, the blood was wiped out and photos were retaken.
