Assembly is expected to be completed around 2022 and the station would have a lifespan of around 10 years. The Tiangong, meaning "Heavenly Palace" in English, could reportedly replace the International Space Station in 2024.

Research institutes, universities, and public and private companies have been invited to propose projects. NASA recently shared a video shot in space aboard the International Space Station that is twice the resolution of those jaw-dropping screens, but it will be a few years before anyone has the hardware necessary to appreciate it.

The station chinese space (CSS), also called Tiangong ("heavenly Palace") will consist of three parts: a main module along almost 17 metres (place of life and labour) presented to you on Tuesday, and two related modules (for scientific experiments).

ISS studies have investigated human research, space medicine, life sciences, physical sciences, astronomy and meteorology. She also hopes to send a robot on Mars and humans on the Moon.

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.
