The Tiangong space station is an orbital object that flies above the Earth at an altitude of 350 to 450 km. The first segment that laid the foundation for the existence of the station was the Tianhe module, which today is the basis of the Chinese reduced version of the ISS. It was sent into orbit at the end of April last year. The next segment of the station, called Wentian, docked with Tianhe in July of this year, and in November, the full assembly of the Tiangong station was completed after the third segment, Mengtian, joined it. Now it is a full-fledged space science laboratory, which is wholly owned by the PRC.

At the moment, only Chinese crew is constantly at the station and various scientific studies are being carried out. Although China has previously stated that the station can be increased in size, but when this will happen is unknown.

It was thanks to the cameras that were placed at the station that a series of images were made that Chinese scientists combined into one video to show all the greatness and beauty of our home planet from space.

Expectedly, in the video you can see that the Earth has a characteristic blue color, and you can also distinguish clouds and oceans that are far below the station. Sometimes the orbital station itself, which is illuminated by the sun's rays, also gets into the frame.

Although the Tiangong station rotates in low Earth orbit, according to statements by Chinese officials associated with the space industry, it is known that the PRC will most likely use this object for the exploration of the moon.

That is, the station can become a kind of outpost for promotion the Chinese to their goal: the establishment of a permanent base on the Earth's satellite. Therefore, the space station can be enlarged to carry out more scientific experiments, as well as to be able to receive new spacecraft.

Currently, three astronauts are working on board the Chinese space station, who arrived there on November 29 2022 and according to the plan, they should be in space for 6 months. Chinese officials believe that this station will operate for at least 10 years.

An unpleasant incident was associated with the launch of the third segment of the Tiangong station. As Focus already wrote, fragments of an unguided rocket that sent the Mengtian module into space fell to Earth.
