Space: Missions with other nations
China’s manned space station is likely to become the world’s only space station after the International Space Station is retired in 2024, Chinese space officials have said.
The International Space Station has worked in part as an orbiting laboratory for multidisciplinary research in areas including physics, medicine and space sciences.
China currently is conducting some cooperation projects with foreign space agencies, mainly concerning scientific and technological experiments onboard China’s Shenzhou XI spacecraft and Tiangong II space laboratory, according to Fu. He did not say which agencies are involved.
