Chinese Astronauts on the Shenzhou 10 spacecraft have manually docked with the Tiangong 1 spacelab.

A successful automatic docking was carried out last week.
Docking is regarded as a difficult manoeuvre, and is essential for space flight. 

China conducted its first manual docking in June last year.
