Chinese female taikonaut Wang Yaping on board the Shenzhou-13 spacecraft will give a lesson while in orbit, the China Manned Space Agency (CMSA) announced on Thursday.

It will be the second time for the taikonaut to broadcast a live lecture in space, deputy director of the CMSA Lin Xiqiang told a press conference ahead of the Shenzhou-13 launch, which is scheduled for 12:23 a.m. (Beijing Time) on Oct. 16.

Wang earned the title of China's first space teacher after delivering a televised science lecture to an audience of over 60 million schoolchildren during the Shenzhou-10 space mission in June 2013.
