The Chinese space agency CNSA has finalized the selection process for 18 astronauts, including a woman, according to a statement on the website of the Asian country’s manned flight program.

The selection process began in May 2018 and consisted of three phases. 2,500 applications were initially received.

Seven pilots, seven flight engineers and four experts in spacecraft, in total there are 18 people.
