China is getting ready to send a woman into space for the first time in a mission that will also represent the country's first manned docking mission with its Tiangong-1 space station.

The mission, announced just a few days ago, is moving forward rapidly: The Shenzhou-9 manned spacecraft to be used in the mission has already been strapped to its carrier rocket and the rocket already moved to the launch pad at a satellite launch center in northwest China.

All that remains is to choose the woman who will be on board when spacecraft shoots skyward.

On Tuesday, in what may or may not be a sign that the decision has been made, the state-run China Daily published a profile of 34-year-old fighter pilot Liu Yang, one of the two candidates tipped as the most likely to go where no Chinese woman has gone before.

Based on the story, it sounds like Ms. Liu will make a reliable and pleasant, if not particularly entertaining, travel partner:

Liu's uncle Niu Zhenxi told China Daily on Tuesday that she has long set the example for children in her relatives' families since she was very devoted and obedient to her parents.

'We all believe that she could make a difference because she is good at overcoming various difficulties,' he said.

... Wang Xufeng, one of Liu's high school classmates, said she was not talkative in high school but very friendly to the other classmates.

'I remember that she was a quiet girl who was shy to talk in public,' Wang told China Daily. 'She always smiled while talking with her friends, and I can still remember her sweet smile.'

She was very diligent in her studies and always ranked in the top 10 of the class in exams, Wang said.

Lest anyone assume that having a sweet smile and obeying her parents as a child means Ms. Liu is soft, the story makes sure to point out that she flies with ice in her veins, citing as evidence an incident in 2003 when a plane she was flying collided in mid-air with a flock of pigeons.

According to China Daily, the plane tore through 18 of the unfortunate birds, destroying one of its engines and splattering blood on the windshield. Despite the carnage, the report says, Ms. Liu managed to keep the plane steady, safely executing an emergency landing minutes later.

The newspaper didn't mention the woman widely believed to be Ms. Liu's chief rival for a seat on the Shenzhou-9, Wang Yaping, a fighter pilot said to have flown relief flights during the Sichuan earthquake.

The Guardian has photos of both women here.

It's unlikely, though by no means impossible, that propaganda authorities would choose to profile Ms. Liu in the country's main state-run English-language newspaper if she weren't considered the front-runner.

In any case, we won't know for sure who won until just before the Shenzhou-9 lifts off, an event authorities have said will happen 'in mid-June
