Watch: Astronaut hangs above Earth in incredible video from Chinese space station

This remarkable footage is a demonstration of China's growing presence in space exploration.

In a remarkable display of human ingenuity and technological prowess, a Chinese astronaut was captured hanging above the Earth in incredible footage from space.

As the Tiangong space station's robotic arm extended into space, the camera at its elbow captured the magnificent scenes that has left viewers in awe.

The video, released by the China Manned Space Agency (CMSA), offers a glimpse into how spacewalks are conducted above the planet, outside the safety of the flying outpost.

As the robotic arm stretches outward, the camera pans across the curvature of the planet, revealing the intricate interplay between land and sea.

This remarkable footage is a demonstration of China's growing presence in space exploration. The Tiangong space station has been the site of numerous groundbreaking achievements, including spacewalks and cutting-edge scientific experiments.

The Shenzhou 18 mission, which launched in late April, has already made history with its extended 8.5-hour spacewalk, surpassing the duration of any previous Chinese extravehicular activity (EVA).

This latest video further solidifies China's position as a major player in the exploration of the final frontier.

During their six-month tenure aboard Tiangong, the Shenzhou-18 team will engage in various scientific endeavors. These include conducting experiments, installing new equipment to shield the station from space debris, and promoting science education.

China's drive to establish its own orbital platform came after being barred from participating in the International Space Station project, primarily due to U.S. concerns over potential military involvements.

In response, China has not only constructed its own station but also planned an ambitious schedule for it, including multiple manned and cargo missions this year.
