Description

    Flown on China's first manned space mission.

    Shenzhou 5 Flown Cover Signed by Yang Liwei. This flight, October 15, 2003, was the first manned space mission from any country other than the United States or Russia (Soviet Union). Only approximately 100 of these philatelic covers were flown and signed by the mission commander, China's first astronaut (taikonaut) Yang Liwei. This notarized cover is contained in a beautiful hardbound 10.5" x 13.25" book, issued by the Chinese Academy of Space Technology, along with three additional commemorative covers and two souvenir stamp sheets. Most of these flown and signed covers were issued to party, government, and industrial VIPs. Very few have made it into the U.S. market. Excellent condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.
