China to launch next expedition to the orbital station in the next days

China has announced new details about its Tiangong space station. In a few days, another launch with astronauts is planned, Bloomberg News Agency reports Monday.

China launched the first module for its space station last year. Two more modules are due in July and October. Tiangong should be finished by the end of this year.

In total, China carries out eleven missions to finish off Tiangong. The next three taikonauts, or astronauts from China, will leave for the space station in June.

The Shenzhou XIV spacecraft, which will take the taikonauts to Tiangong, was moved to the launch pad of the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in Mongolia on Sunday. According to state media, the launch is scheduled "in the coming days".

China is not a partner of the ISS space station, to which Europe, the United States and Russia are affiliated. The country is therefore dependent on its own station.
