BEIJING, Apr. 19 (China Space News) — China's SJ-10 retrievable scientific research satellite landed in the designed area in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous region at 16:30 Monday after 12 days of space flight.

It was found in good shape after operation in space, engineers said.

The capsule was transferred to the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST), which handed over the equipment aboard the capsule to the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) for further analysis and assessment.

While in space, the bullet-shaped satellite conducted 19 experiments involving microgravity fluid physics, microgravity combustion, space material, space radiation effect, microgravity biological effect and space bio-technology.
