Space News from the Space Coast: "China's successful 14-orbit voyage around the Earth on its first manned rocket trip puts the nation in the same circle as Russia and the United States, experts said.

"The craft carrying Lt. Col. Yang Liwei, 38, landed safely early today on the grasslands of Inner Mongolia in northern China as planned. His trip makes China the third country to put people into orbit successfully. The Soviet Union's Yuri Gagarin was first in 1961.

"'The mission was a success,' said Li Jinai, head of China's manned space program. He called Yang a 'space hero.'"
