Astronauts aboard the Shenzhou-10 spacecraft have given a special lecture through live feed while in orbit.

Female astronaut Wang Yaping, one of the three crew members of the spacecraft, greeted about 330 primary and middle school students at a Beijing high school.

"Hello, everyone, I'm Wang Yaping, host of today's lecture. We are currently greeting you from the cabin of Tiangong-1 at more than 300 kilometers above the earth."

As part of the interactive exchange, she taught about motion in a microgravity environment, the surface tension of liquid, and helped students understand the concepts of weight and mass as well as Newton's Laws of Motion.

More than 60 million students and teachers across the country were also watching the live broadcast on TV.

And now to someone who was at the High School, I'm joined live on the line by our reporter Luo Laiming who was at the lecture this morning.
