After flying in orbit for two days, China's reusable spacecraft, which was launched from Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center on Friday, successfully returned to its designated landing site on Sunday.

The experimental flight marked a breakthrough in R&D for reusable spacecraft, and in the future, such spacecraft will pave the way for peaceful utilization of space and offer a cheaper commuting option for space travel.
