China's first space station core module Tianhe in 60 seconds
China on Thursday successfully launched the Tianhe core module at the Wenchang Spacecraft Launch Site in the southern province of Hainan. The Tianhe core module is the largest and most complicated spacecraft independently developed by China. It can support astronauts carrying out different scientific and technical experiments in space. The Tianhe core module is the basis, while the next two modules will be assembled later in orbit to form the complete Chinese space station.
