BEIJING - China's Shenzhou-X spacecraft will return to the Earth at about 8 am Wednesday as scheduled.

The spacecraft Shenzhou-X on Tuesday morning docked with the target module Tiangong-1 from behind after flying around the latter, the Beijing Aerospace Control Center said.

This marked the success of China's first such flying-around and docking test.

The spacecraft, with three astronauts aboard, was launched on June 11.
