"There is no doubt that China will use its station in a similar way as the ISS partners are using their outpost: research, technology and as a stepping-stone for deep-space exploration", said Chen Lan, a reporter at GoTaikonauts.com news portal which is a collaborator of the Chinese space program.

However, China wants to keep its doors open to partnerships, and the Chinese government even promised that the upcoming "Heavenly Palace" Space Station would also collaborate with all the countries involved in the ISS project.

It would then become the only resort to move into the space after the retreat scheduled in 2024 the global space station (ISS) - which combines the United States, Russia, Europe, Japan, and Canada.

In the future, Tiangong should join the other two module intended for scientific experiments, solar panels. The 60-ton orbiting lab could house three astronauts, allowing them to perform biological and microgravity research. In August, the space station's crew had to plug up an air leak in a Russian Soyuz spacecraft that's now docked to the station.

Russia's space agency says that one of the International Space Station's computers has malfunctioned, but the glitch doesn't pose any risks to the crew. The station, whose construction will be completed in 2022, will be open to astronauts of all countries. 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.

Trump administration moves to curb migrants' asylum claims
Administration officials have said existing U.S. asylum rules encouraged illegal immigration and bogged down legitimate claims. Officials have turned away asylum seekers at border crossings because of overcrowding, telling them to return later.


"The ability to put payloads and experiments on a human spaceflight platform is extremely valuable", said Bill Ostrove, space analyst with US-based Forecast International consultancy.

"A lot of countries and a growing number of private companies, and universities have space programs, but no money to build their own space station".

NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) have brought us the veryfirst 8K video from space.

Beijing is pouring billions into its military-run space program, with plans to send humans to the Moon in the near future.

Roscosmos said the two other computer systems are sufficient for safe operation of the station indefinitely, but it wants the third one back online "to ensure the reliability" of next week's scheduled docking with an uncrewed Russian Progress cargo spacecraft.
