HONG KONG, Aug. 21 (Xinhua) -- Hong Kong youngsters will have the opportunity to engage in a real-time dialogue with three mainland astronauts on China's space station next month.

The three astronauts, Nie Haisheng, Liu Boming and Tang Hongbo, on board the Shenzhou-12 spaceship were sent into space and entered the space station core module Tianhe on June 17 and have since carried out a number of tasks as planned.

It is reported that during the conversation on Sept. 3, the astronauts will give a virtual tour of the core module and answer questions collected in advance.

People who are interested in taking part should submit their questions on the Hong Kong STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) Education Alliance's website from Aug. 23.
