Media plays up Taiwanese praise for second flight Beijing has wasted no opportunity to state the importance to the nation of the Shenzhou VI mission. In a typical example, the China News Service reported Taiwanese people's enthusiasm about the mission. '[It] showcases the scientific and technological development of the motherland, which is catching up with the United States and Russia. As a descendant of the Yellow Emperor, I feel very proud indeed,' Taiwanese entrepreneur Chang Yung-nan was quoted as saying from Kunshan , the home town of Colonel Fei. I was misquoted on cost of mission, says designer Jiang Jingshan , one of the designers of the space programme, said he had been misquoted during a recent trip to Hong Kong by a local newspaper when he talked about the cost of the mission. 'I said China had so far spent an estimated 20 billion yuan on the manned space programme, which included the six Shenzhou spacecraft and a lot of infrastructure in Beijing, Jiuquan and many other places.' Families must wait for crew to get over journey Much as the families of Nie Haisheng and Fei Junlong would like to reunite with the astronauts, they will have to wait a while before they can have a family gathering. For the next week or so, the astronauts will be kept in isolation to ensure they are physically fit for life on Earth, according to Xinhua. Space programme doctor Li Yongzhi said their stay in space might have caused a loss of calcium and weakened their immune systems. Yang Liwei given role in training his successors The astronaut in China's first manned space mission, Colonel Yang Liwei , has been appointed a deputy director of the training centre for the manned space programme. Its director, Tang Xianming , did not say when the appointment took effect, but noted that Colonel Yang had given training to the astronauts shortlisted for training for the Shenzhou VI mission during the past two years. Pair come down to earth with a modest breakfast Colonels Nie and Fei had a chocolate and herbal tea breakfast after their return to Earth - a meal more modest than the elaborate fare they dined on in space, which included stir-fry with scrambled eggs and kung pao chicken. Xinhua said the breakfast menu would help them recuperate.
