In China presented its own space station

In China presented its own space station”

Also, the so-called "Heavenly Palace" Space Station is the most ambitious project of the Chinese aerospace agency, operated by the Chinese Army and China's government.

Engineers who previously sent high-definition (HD) cameras, 3D cameras, and a camera capable of recording 4K footage to the International Space Station, delivered the new 8K camera to the station in April aboard the 14th SpaceX cargo resupply mission through a Space Act Agreement between NASA and RED. Despite the odd mishap, the station is constantly occupied and is a hub for ongoing multidisciplinary experiments that are quite literally out of this world.

However, China's future space station is about to change everything.

It sent up the Tiangong-1, the country's first prototype space lab, in September 2011, where it spent almost seven years in space before plunging back to Earth in April this year amid claims that China had lost control of the station.

At Airshow China, the China National Space Administration unveiled a replica of Tiangong's core module, which measures 55 feet long.

China will then have the only space station in orbit, though it will be much smaller than the ISS which weighs 400 tonnes and is as large as a football pitch.

The space station program is called Tiangong, which means "Heavenly Palace" in Chinese. "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.

"I'm sure over time China will be successful in developing partnerships".

"Many countries, and increasingly private companies and universities, have space programs, but can not afford to build their own space station", he said.

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

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

A second lab, the Tiangong-2, was launched into orbit in 2016.

"The space market is becoming more diverse", he said, "so it will be hard for one or two countries or companies to dominate the field in the way the USA and Soviet Union did during the Cold War".
