China is in the process of developing a space station by 2020 and planned to run from 2022 in the low-Earth orbit and it is also claimed as the biggest ever by China. According to the recent announcement from the country's ambassador to UN in Vienna, China Space station (CSS) not only belongs to China but also to the world.
China invites the members of United States to use its Space Station in order to make it beneficial to other countries too and also in view of establishing a relationship with them particularly among developing countries similar to the case of the joint functioning of NASA and Russia in various space missions. Already, China and European Space Agency are jointly involved in training a few of astronauts to stay on its Space Station in future.
China allows researchers of other countries to create their own experimental set up in their space station or use the experimental lab of China. In connection to this, China asked the universities and organizations to send their proposals within August 31, 2018.
With its first manned space mission in 2003, China has only launched six spaceflight missions so far and in its last mission in 2016, astronauts have settled for 30 days in the space lab Tiangong-2 and it is said to be the longest-ever in China. The country's Long March 5 rocket is expected to carry the pieces of the space station.
World would not forget China's space lab falling recently. China's Tiangong-1 space lab in the size of school bus burned in the Earth's atmosphere and fell on the Pacific Ocean on April 1 and radars have been used for tracking the fall in the Northern Hemisphere.
