Here is Our First Take a look at China's New Area Station

The european space agency (ESA) sends already astronauts training in China, with the goal that they are flying a day aboard the station in chinese.

Russia's State Space Corporation Roscosmos confirmed on Tuesday that one of the three computers on the Russian segment of the International Space Station (ISS) had been out of service due to a software glitch.

Roskosmos said Russian flight controllers plan to reboot the faulty computer - one of the three in the station's Russian module - on November 8. At the moment, the station is the only operational space laboratory in orbit.

China will then have the only space station in orbit, though it will be much smaller than the ISS which weighs 400 tons and is as large as a football pitch. Construction is expected to be completed around 2022.

China just showed the world that it's upping its space exploration game with the introduction of the Tiangong Space Station. China announced earlier this year that they would allow other countries to conduct experiments on-board Tiangong.

According to Bill Ostrove, on the other hand, despite the significant achievements that EU, China, Japan, and Russian Federation make, the USA will remain the most significant power in space exploration. Beijing has received 40 from 27 countries and regions, proposals that still need to be the subject of a selection, reported in October, State television CCTV.

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

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.

"Dominate the space has never been a goal for China", says Chen Lan.

"Many countries, and increasingly private companies and universities, have space programs, but can not afford to build their own space station", he said. "But the business issues are becoming increasingly important in the space, and she recognizes the innovation and science as major economic engines". With our thanks! The Galaxy Editorial Staff.
