China just unveiled a life-size replica of the core module of the country's new space station at Airshow China, the largest aerospace exhibition in the country.

In 2024, it will become the world's only space station if the United States-led International Space Station is retired that year as planned.

However, China's future space station is about to change everything. It is expected that construction will be completed around 2022.

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.

The space station program is called Tiangong, which means "Heavenly Palace" in Chinese.

China has already invited distinguished universities, research institutes, and both public and private companies to propose possible projects. The country's state media reported that China had received around 40 plans from 27 countries and regions.

"Science gets scaled up with the first 8K ultra high definition (UHD) video from the International Space Station", NASA wrote in the video description on YouTube.

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

"The ability to put payloads and experiments on a human spaceflight platform is extremely valuable". The moon will also travel to the Japanese space ship.

The new station will technically belong to China, but will open its doors to all United Nations countries.

But it has encountered some glitches.

Chinese authorities denied that the lab, which was placed in orbit in September 2011 as a testing ground for the permanent station, was out of control.

"The space market is becoming more diverse", he said, "so it will be hard for one or two countries or companies to dominate the field in the way the US and Soviet Union did during the Cold War".
