Ground Control to Major Wong

China's three-man spacecraft shifted from an oval orbit to a more stable circular orbit 213 miles above Earth today in preparation for the country's first attempt at a spacewalk. China's offical Xinhua News Agency was so excited about the event it ran a story on Thursday announcing ground controllers were tracking Chinese astronauts, complete with details and quotes from the astronauts, 12 hours before the astronauts blasted off.
