Shooting for the moon

Chinese students will live in a laboratory simulating a lunar-like environment for up to 200 days as Beijing prepares for its long-term goal of putting humans on the moon. Four postgraduate students from the capital's astronautics research university Beihang entered the 160 sq m cabin - dubbed the Yuegong-1, or Lunar Palace - on Wednesday.
