Similar in size, its duration of life must be about fifteen years.

In six months, the crew also continued the construction of the station, animated two internet courses for Chinese schoolchildren, realized experiences and refined its mastery of long-term stays.

The last two modules of the spatial station must be sent from July.

They will take the direction of space from the Wenchang launch center, located on the tropical island of Hainan (South) and whose Chinese president Xi Jinping said Thursday to make it a "world-class" site.

China posed at the beginning of 2019 a gear on the hidden face of the moon (a world first). In 2020, it reported moon samples and finalized Beidou, its satellite navigation system (American GPS competitor).

in 2021, she made a small robot on Mars and plans to send men on the moon on the horizon 2030.

The ambition of China to build its own station was nourished by the American refusal of Accepting Chinese in the ISS - a program led by NASA.
