NASA Releases First 8K Footage From Space (And It's Really Cool)

NASA Releases First 8K Footage From Space (And It's Really Cool)

A small section of the station is already in orbit, and a pair of astronauts visited in 2016, but right now it isn't designed for long-term habitability and has sat unoccupied for two years. The molecules collide among themselves in the lower atmosphere that causes the Aurora.

In 2024, it will become the world's only space station if the United States-led International Space Station is retired that year as planned. During this time the astronauts will evaluate its ability to protect from radiation, keep the temperature, as well as to resist the blows of micrometeorites, dust and other factors of the space environment.

With assembly expected to be completed around 2022, a sneak preview of the 17-metre (55-foot) core module wowed audiences at China's main aerospace industry exhibition in the southern coastal city of Zhuhai. The country's state media reported that China had received around 40 plans from 27 countries and regions.

"I'm sure over time China will be successful developing partnerships", said Bill Ostrove, space analyst with US-based Forecast International consultancy.

"Many countries, and increasingly private companies and universities, have space programs, but can not afford to build their own space station", he said. China announced earlier this year that they would allow other countries to conduct experiments on-board Tiangong.

China's Tiangong project is a work in progress, with the first iteration, a prototype called Tiangong-1, that spectacularly fell to Earth after China's space agency lost control of it.

But China's space program has encountered some glitches. She also hopes to send a robot on Mars and humans on the Moon.

The size of the Chinese space station ISS less.

"Dominate the space has never been a goal for China", says Chen Lan. "It will therefore be hard for one or two countries or companies to dominate the sector in the same way that the United States were during the cold War", the judge said it.

But Russia, the European Space Agency, Japan and India will continue to play "major roles" in space exploration, while private firms are becoming increasingly important in the sector, Ostrove added.
