China unveils new ‘Heavenly Palace’ space station as ISS days numbered

China unveils new ‘Heavenly Palace’ space station as ISS days numbered

In may past year, NASA astronauts launched to the ISS experimental inflatable module beam, intended for the accommodation of the members of the station crew. "The most likely scenario for the future is that China will emerge as one of the major space powers", said Ostrove.

Tiangong slightly smaller than the ISS, which is in value about the same as an American football field. The three-minute video on YouTube sees astronauts living, working and conducting research from the International Space Station, from both inside and outside its orbiting laboratory.

Alternatively the money could be used to speed up planned human space initiatives to the moon and Mars.

On Tuesday, China publicly introduced a life-sized replica of the Tiangong Space Station, the country's first permanently crewed future space laboratory. Construction is expected to be completed around 2022.

"The space agency, china and the United Nations could quite imagine".

China is investing billions into its space program, flown by the army.

China just showed the world that it's upping its space exploration game with the introduction of the Tiangong Space Station.

According to state media, some 40 plans from 27 countries and regions have been received from research institutes, universities, and public and private companies that are hoping to utilise the Heavenly Palace as they would have with the ISS. "The possibility for them (thanks to China) to send payloads on a platform of manned flight and conducting experiments is something that's extremely valuable", he observes.

Chinese authorities denied that the lab - which was placed in orbit in September 2011 as a testing ground for the permanent station - was out of control.

The second iteration, Tiangong-2, is still a work in progress.

"Despite a lot of talk of the opposite, the United States remains the most dominant power in space right now".

"Dominate the space has never been a goal for China", says Chen Lan. "It will therefore be hard for one or two countries or companies to dominate the sector in the same way that the United States were during the cold War", the judge said it. "But the business issues are becoming increasingly important in the space, and she recognizes the innovation and science as major economic engines".
