China has begun the final stages of building its own space station

The PRC is building the Tiangong station in space, preparing to become the first state in the world to solely own such an object. This moment is already close, as China has begun the final stages of building its own space station.


This message came from the Chinese agency Xinhua.

China's media said that a Long March 5B rocket was launched yesterday from the Wenchang Cosmodrome on Hainan Island. She has on board the last laboratory module of the Mentian station, whose name translates as "dream of the sky."


Arriving at a place 400 kilometers away from the earth's surface, it will dock with two other modules - the main Tiangong and the experimental Wentian. After that, it will be possible to say that the construction of the space station belonging to China is completed. The creation of this object, which will acquire a T-shape, has been ongoing since April last year. It is assumed that the Tiangong station (heavenly palace) will be ready for operation by the end of the year.


It was decided to build it after Beijing received a refusal from Washington, when the Chinese authorities expressed their desire to participate in the Russian-American project of the International Space Station (ISS).

In addition to creating its own station, Beijing's plans for space exploration include a manned flight to the moon. The Chinese expect to make it as early as this decade.

    The fact that they are the only ones in the world now have a national space station is indisputable.

          First and most importantly, after the collapse of the USSR, they preserved the domestic manned cosmonautics. And these are factories and people who work there, as well as engineering technologies.

          As regards conducting space experiments, both fundamental scientific research and practical work on the development of space technologies and biomedicine are carried out on the ISS.

          They shared the experience of our manned flights and life in orbit in the 70s and 80s of the last century. In the absence of funding for our astronautics in the 90s and early XNUMXs, some technologies and materiel were sold to China. Benefit - the money from the sale was invested in our space industry, in the same modernization of our manned systems.

          yes you are not all reasons have listed!

          The refusal to operate the station and its liquidation were due to a number of reasons: depreciation of equipment, lack of financial resources and others, including, according to the former head of Roscosmos Yuri Koptev, the rescue of the expensive American Freedom project, which was reborn into the ISS project

          That's right, like the fact that in the USSR there were reasons build the Mir station, and flood someone.

          right, the station itself became dangerous as it is now the "world", but the research modules could still work for 15 years. There was an option to dock the "star" to the "world". Make it a purely Russian laboratory and then there would be no this lowing with the "science" module

        The last crew at the Mir station left it on June 16, 2000. By this time, the basic and first modules of the station's retrofitting had exhausted their service life THREE TIMES. Moreover, part of the equipment was inoperable, which required constant repair of the station elements and on-board instruments by the crew members, instead of scientific work, and the complete lack of funding for the program from the Yeltsin administration put an end to further operation.

        The commercial component also did not shoot - the naivety and unwillingness of the leadership of the Russian space industry of that period to work in market conditions led to various crooks from Western companies taking advantage of this, promising financing in words, but doing practically nothing for this, which aggravated the situation.

        The launching into orbit in 2000 of the base module of the SM Zvezda, a twin of the base module of the Mir station and its docking with the retrofitting module of the FGB Zarya with the node module of the American segment Unity, allowed Russia to continue manned space work.

        Wrong. Three of our cosmonauts are currently present on the Russian segment of the ISS, which consists of five modules. Which work both under the Russian program for conducting scientific experiments, and according to the international one. Visiting expeditions also arrive at the ISS RS.

        American astronauts were offered to jump on the trampoline in 2015. to the ISS. Musk's first manned spacecraft flew in 2020. The implementation of the proposed would make them jump from the trampoline to the station for five whole years.

        But we, Russia, did not then begin to break off cooperation in space. We do not break it even now, since it is beneficial for us.

      The funny thing here is that it was originally assumed that we would build a joint station with the Chinese, there were talks and projects in 2018 about this. This was explained by the fact that in 2018 China did not have sufficient knowledge, skills and technologies for this. But 5 years have passed... and now they have decided, apparently, that not voting against Russia in the UN Security Council is a quite sufficient level of partnership and alliance.

        Maybe you meant Lunar space station? because projects of a joint orbital station, at least I have not seen ... but there were talks and rumors about a joint Lunar orbital station, in this period of time.

        But in any case, this is a utopia .... because. even if both sides were ready for such a project, then Russia would have to invest heavily in the construction of such a station, and our budget is clearly not ready for this + we are already participating in the ISS project, and in order to finance a new international project, we would have to say goodbye to old ... but in 2010-2020 we could not afford this. and there was no such interest.

        In China, by the way, too, there was no particular desire to build a joint project ... they have funding and national. a space program that provides for the construction of a NATIONAL space station, with the invitation of other international partners to this project, i.e. as guests...

        And in the future. if there is a project for a lunar space station (with a crew), then the parties will have to invest so well .... are we ready to take on 50% of the funding? I highly doubt this.)

The circumlunar space is not protected either by the Earth's magnetosphere or radiation belts, in 2-3 months the station will turn into a radioactive piece of metal. Isn't it very expensive to build such a one-time station?
