SJ-10 (SHIJIAN 10) is a chinese satellite that carries 19 experiments investigating fluid physics, combustion in space, materials science, biotechnology, and the effects of microgravity and radiation on plants and animals. Shijian 10's return capsule will descend to parachute-assisted landing in China's Inner Mongolia region in about two weeks, while an orbital module will remain in space to conduct further experiments. The experiment package includes investigations probing how solid materials and wiring insulation ignite and burn in microgravity, how space radiation damages DNA, and the effects of the space environment on the development of mouse and silkworm embryos. The investigations could aid designers of future spacecraft and help scientists study how humans could reproduce in space.
