    In fact the report may be traced back to September 11.
    For example, Xinhua in refers it to a 
    Chinese newspaper
    whose author in fact refers to what Huang Chunping said
    on September 11. This report (and hundreds of follow-ons)
    give launch time as 9:10 p.m., not 21:10. Also, Huang
    Chunping explains that the end of September launch provides
    better solar angle conditions for EVA than the usual October
    timeframe. Given the level of details, I tend to believe
    this report.
