BEIJING, July 10 (Xinhua) -- Sixty-nine percent of young Chinese people surveyed by the China Youth Daily felt the spirit shown and achievements made during China's manned exploration of space were encouraging and inspiring.

According to the newspaper's recent survey of 2,047 people aged between 14 and 35, China's achievements in the human exploration of space have demonstrated a brave and ambitious spirit, a rigorous work style that always seeks excellence, and strong willpower and loyalty to the country.

Wang Junjie, a researcher, participated in the survey. He said he and his colleagues couldn't help but applaud when they saw the successful launch of China's Shenzhou-12 manned space mission.

"As a researcher, I can very much relate to that joy. Research can go unnoticed for years, and researchers are all waiting for their day of success to come," said Wang.

Having watched the successful launch, 66 percent of the respondents said they had strong interest in and curiosity about the space industry and hope to contribute to it in the future.

Over 98 percent of respondents said they would continue to follow the development of the space industry.

Hu Muchen, a university student majoring in computer science and technology, said that aerospace science is inseparable from computer-related knowledge. "If I could really contribute to the aerospace industry, I would feel extremely honored."

Nearly 64 percent of people surveyed said they wanted to learn more about the construction of China's space station, and 52 percent said they wanted to know how human space missions are realized. Enditem
