China declares successful launch of Shenzhou-11

China on Monday successfully launched the manned spacecraft Shenzhou-11 that will dock with the space lab Tiangong-2.
    
The spacecraft, with two male astronauts on board, was launched at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China's Gobi desert at 7:30 a.m. Beijing Time Monday atop a Long March-2F Y11 carrier rocket.

The spacecraft later entered the designated orbit.

The mission was declared a success by Zhang Youxia, commander-in-chief of China's manned space program, about 19 minutes after the blast-off.
