China launched the main module of its own space station last Thursday. This is the latest step in the country’s increasingly ambitious space program. This module called Thien He has rooms for astronauts to stay. The space station was launched from the Wenchang Space Launch Center in China by a Long March FiveB rocket. Beijing hopes their new space station will be operational by 2022.
There is now only one space station in space, which is the International Space Station. It is not allowed to use China. China has started its space mission too late. In 2003, China first sent its astronauts into orbit. China was then the third country to run a space mission after the Soviet Union and the United States.
Earlier, China sent two space stations into orbit. Tiangang-1 and Tiangang-2 were both experimental space stations. These were very simple modules, where astronauts were allowed to stay for a relatively short time.
The current new Tiangong station weighs 7 tons and has many modules. This station can work for at least 10 years. Thien He is the main part of this permanent Tiangong space station. It is 18.6 meters long and 4.2 meters wide. This module will supply power to the space station and orbit the space station. The module will also have astronaut accommodation and life-saving technology. China plans to launch at least 10 more similar launches, which will send additional equipment into orbit. Their plan is to complete the work of launching this station by next year. Source: BBC.
