On Tuesday, China publicly introduced a life-sized replica of the Tiangong Space Station, the country's first permanently crewed future space laboratory.

The size of the Chinese space station ISS less.

The model represented the living and working space of the Tiangong - or "Heavenly Palace" - which will also have two other modules for scientific experiments and will be equipped with solar panels. Earlier this year, the country announced that the lab would be open to "all countries" to conduct science experiments and the European Space Agency has already sent astronauts to China for training so that they can use the space station once it is up and running.

Institutes, universities, and public and private companies were invited to submit projects. Some 40 plans from 27 countries and regions have been received, according to state media.

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

"I'm sure over time China will be successful developing partnerships", said Bill Ostrove, space analyst with USA -based Forecast International consultancy.

Despite the rivalry between Beijing and Washington, engaged in a trade war, a spationaut american could even one day work on board the CSS.

And China is not keeping the space station all to itself.

But it has encountered some glitches.

The company SpaceX Elon musk will orbit the satellite, which is seen from Earth is its only goal. "The ability to put payloads and experiments on a human spaceflight platform is extremely valuable", also said Bill Ostrove, a space analyst at the US-based Forecast International Consultancy.

"Despite a lot of talk of the opposite, the United States remains the most dominant power in space right now".

"The private companies that hold a growing place in the market space".

"Dominate the space has never been a goal for China", says Chen Lan.

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.
