HARD CRITICISE FROM NASA
The American Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) accused it of “failing to fulfill its responsibility” in its statement on the subject.

IT WILL BE THE ONLY STATION IN SPACE AFTER 2024
The station, which will consist of a core module, two laboratory modules and a space telescope, will be about the same size as Russia’s no longer active Mir Space Station when completed. Following the “Tienhi” module, the laboratory modules named “Vıntien” (Searching the Skies) and “Mıngtien” (Dreaming the Skies) will be sent to space in 2022. After the main skeleton is formed, the space telescope named “Shuntian” (Traveling the Skies) will be added to the station as a separate module in the following years.
