Russia's Roscosmos Confirms Computer Glitch On Board ISS

China's New'Heavenly Palace Is Its Space Station As ISS Days Numbered

This is a new symbol of its ambition in space: China has unveiled Tuesday a replica of its first large space station, which should be meeting around 2022, and the successor to the ISS.

The three astronauts will be able to live permanently on board of the spacecraft, with a total weight of at least 60 tons, and equipped with solar panels.

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

"There is no doubt that China will use its station in a similar way as the ISS partners are using their outpost: research, technology and as a stepping-stone for deep-space exploration", said Chen Lan, a reporter at GoTaikonauts.com news portal which is a collaborator of the Chinese space program.

The country announced in May that the lab would be open to "all countries" to conduct science experiments.

China's Tiangong project is a work in progress, with the first iteration, a prototype called Tiangong-1, that spectacularly fell to Earth after China's space agency lost control of it.

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.

Musk settled with the Commission on a 2nd investigation into his claims on the "420" Twitter that he would take Tesla private. The Tesla founder had announced earlier this year that he expects to travel to India in early 2019.

In may a year ago, NASA astronauts launched to the ISS experimental inflatable module beam intended for the accommodation of the members of the station crew.

"I'm sure over time China will be successful developing partnerships", said Bill Ostrove, space analyst with USA -based Forecast International consultancy.

According to Bill Ostrove, on the other hand, despite the significant achievements that EU, China, Japan, and Russian Federation make, the U.S. will remain the most significant power in space exploration.

The company SpaceX Elon musk will orbit the satellite, which is seen from Earth is its only objective.

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

The asian giant will become "one of the great powers of space", but Russia, Japan and India will continue to play a "major role" and "the United States remains the space power dominant" at the present time, writes Bill Ostrove. China has said it plans to let space agencies from other governments use the station for experiments.
