Space debris of Shenzhou I, Shenzhou II and Shenzhou III will be moved from Xichang Satellite Launching Center and other centers to Wenchang Satellite Launch Center to promote the construction of Hainan international tourism island, according to on Thursday.

Many projects themselves at Wenchang Satellite Launching Center are tourism projects, said Shangzhi, a research fellow from China Academy of Space Technology on Tuesday.

After the completion of the space theme park at Wenchang Satellite Launching Center, space debris of Shenzhou I, and Shenzhou II and Shenzhou III will be settled down here.

In addition, a space hall will be built in the theme park. Visitors can experience space walks and enjoy a simulated landscape of the moon and the Earth's orbit at a space simulation room, which will enrich Hainan's tourism resources and attract more visitors.
