China is expected to launch two lab modules to expand its natural budget in 2022. Until the construction space station, China also launched 11 flights into the universe.

China has chosen seasoned crew for this mission.

China's first flight to Thien Cung space stations is considered a big step for the country to be permanently present outside the universe.

American officials in the past few years publicly expressed concerns before the progress of the Chinese Space Program.

Although the US had a new President and the new government, the US aviation agency and a universe (NASA) still remained the plan to bring people to the moon as soon as possible.

Thien Cung will soon become the only space station of humanity on Earth orbit.

American astronauts cannot set foot on Thien Cung, at least with Washington's current law provisions.

In 2019, China became the first country to put robots landed at the dark part of the moon.

Our opponents are determined.

Beijing began to invite other countries to cooperate using Thien Cung.

Space programs are associated with national pride in China.

The event took place nearly a month before the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Chinese Communist Party.
