I want to sing, here are some official translations in English:
“Space work is not easy,
don’t forget to be healthy,
enjoy a hundred kinds of vegetables,
fish-flavored meat division, Kung Pao Hua,
rice crackers are good Delicious,
pandas are happy for you and me.
This song also pays tribute to the robotic arms and Wi-Fi on the space station, allowing the crew to keep in touch with the earth and be able to perform scientific and maintenance tasks in orbit.

Russia said earlier this month that although negotiations with China are still in the early stages, it may send astronauts to the Tiangong space station in the near future. Russia is a partner of the International Space Station program, but China is not a participant in the International Space Station. This is largely due to concerns about China’s security and military practices that prevented NASA from signing bilateral agreements in 2011.
Roscosmos CEO Dmitry Rogozin (Dmitry Rogozin) also said this month that his country may withdraw from the International Space Station transaction in 2024, which may make the Chinese transaction easier. At the same time, the new NASA Administrator Bill Nelson and the new NASA Deputy Administrator Pam Melroy expressed concerns about China’s more ambitious and aggressive activities in space at a recent congressional hearing. (Although Melroy was a candidate for deputy director at the time).
China’s recent outstanding space activities include the landing of the first rover on the back of the moon in 2019, and the landing of China’s first rover on Mars earlier this year. China has also received international condemnation for causing the central stage of the huge Long March 5B rocket to crash onto the earth uncontrollably after launching the Tiangong central stage in May. The rocket crash caused no casualties.
