The class will present topics including life and work aboard the Tianhe space station module, the behavior of biological cells, how astronauts move in microgravity, water surface tension experiments and more, according to CMSA, the agency of China’s human spaceflight.

The lesson will be part of a series known as the “Tiangong Class,” which takes its name from the Chinese space station (meaning “heavenly palace”), as China seeks to use its new orbital outpost to inspire interest in space and science at the national level and by international prestige.

Wang Yaping, on his first trip to space in 2013, taught a science class to 60 million school children while on board the Tiangong 1 space laboratory.

Thursday’s class will be broadcast live on Chinese media, and will likely also be broadcast on CGTN’s YouTube channel in English.
