China to launch space station by 2023


www.bbc.co.uk said:

China expects to complete its first orbiting space station within a decade.

The station, in low-Earth orbit, will be able to support six crew on short-term missions and three for long-term stays.

Its design consists of three capsules - a core module attached to two laboratories - with a cargo vessel to transport supplies.
