Over the past five years, China has performed 152 launches into space, more than any other country. China is set to carry out more than 40 launches this year, including putting the base of the future space station into orbit.
China’s manned space station project will enter a critical stage and will become the top priority of the space program during the year.
The main module of the first space station “Tiangong” will be launched in the spring with the help of the heavy launch vehicle “Changzheng-5”. A total of 12 launches are planned, and the construction of the station is planned to be completed by the end of 2022.
According to the Chinese media, the country’s space agency is already preparing astronauts for future work in orbit. China plans to build a manned lunar orbital station.
However, these plans will come true at best by 2045. Before that, there are a lot of technical problems that the United States has already overcome.
