Chinese Space Station...
...assembly has started.
China has begun the process of building its own space station, the Tiangong 3, by launching the first of three modules into orbit. The Tianhe module will be the core of the space station and will provide the living quarters for up to three taikonauts.
A further nine launches will be required to place two science labs along with a crew capsule/lifeboat, plus additional cargo and equipment to fit out the station.
Tianhe was launched atop a Long March-5B rocket from the Wenchang Space Launch Centre in Hainan, China. It's 16.6 meters long and 4.2 meters in diameter.
The completed station will weigh 66 tonnes, orbit 400km above the earth and have an operational life span of 10 years. It's approximately one quarter the size of the ISS.
