The Shenzhou 8 spacecraft was automatically docked with the Tiangong-1 space module (launched on 29 September 2011) on November 3 and again on November 14, 2011. This unmanned docking—China’s first—was followed in 2012 with the manned Shenzhou 9 mission, which performed a manned docking (also China’s first) with the Tiangong-1 module.
