China will start launch­ing parts of its per­ma­nent manned space sta­tion start­ing in 2018 and put the space sta­tion into ser­vice around 2022, ac­cord­ing to pre­vi­ous re­ports.

It will con­sist of three parts — a core mod­ule at­tached to two space labs, each weigh­ing about 20 met­ric tons. A scaled model of the space sta­tion is on dis­play at the six-day air show that opened on Tues­day in Zhuhai.
