China space station
The Tianzhou-1 spacecraft successfully transferred propellant to the Tiangong-2 module this week.
It's the first in a new line of spacecraft designed to eventually support a Chinese space station.
The Long March 7 rocket that will launch the Tianzhou-1 spacecraft arrived last week at the Wenchang launch site for a launch planned for the latter half of April.
The Chinese government has agreed to help finance non-Chinese payloads and experiments to be operated from China’s future space station through the United Nations as part of its attempt to internationalize the program, a senior Chinese space official told the U.N.
