Last September 2022, the Chinese Manned Space Engineering Office and the African Union Commission organised the first edition of the Dialogue between Chinese taikonauts and African teenagers.
In this way, the Chinese Embassy in Malabo has seen fit to reveal the names of the applicants to the drawing contest “My Dream in Space – Dialogue with Chinese Taikonauts” due to their collaboration and quick completion of the works. They are young people from Dreamshub, Maria Cano School, CANIGE Secondary School, Aivy Miriam Nimo Lohoba, Ivan Sales Ndong Osa and Dionisia Alogo Asu Obeng.
In this sense, these young Equatoguineans, together with their peers from Kenya, Comoros, Ivory Coast, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe and Morocco, will have the opportunity to dialogue directly with the Chinese taikonauts in space during the second edition of this event that will take place in September this year.
The Chinese side will provide simultaneous interpretation into Spanish exclusively for Equatorial Guinea. The works submitted in this same contest will be evaluated in China, and in addition to the great bonus, the winning works will have the opportunity to be taken by the Chinese spacecraft Shenzhou to the Tiangong Space Station, and broadcast live on the global social media platform.
