Default China sends two astronauts to live onboard its space station in nation's longest manned mission yet

The spacecraft blasted off from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre in the Gobi desert this morning
Two astronauts are onboard and they will take around two days to reach the Tiangong-2 space lab
They will remain on board for 30 days to conduct tests on spacecraft technologies and experiments
Space laboratory is part of a broader plan to have a permanent manned space station in service in 2022
