In a concrete step toward openness and universal cooperation, the United Nations and China in recent time jointly declared nine global scientific experiments that will be conducted on the CSS (China Space Station). The nine experiments comprising 23 entities from 17 nations, emerging from 42 bids of 27 nations were picked with six completely and three conditionally. By offering scientists across the globe with an opportunity to carry their own trials aboard the CSS, the Chinese program plans to open up space exploration commotions to all nations and to form a new model in building abilities in space science and technology.
From the liftoff of its first satellite in 1970, China has attained one after another accomplishment in exploring the space. China’s state-of-art space program—counting the well-set-up Manned Space Program—is one of the most comprehensive and technologically progressed in the world. But the country does not plan to limit the scientific chances in space explorations exclusively to itself; rather, it has always stated that the exploration and employ of outer space would be carried out for the assistance of all countries, exclusive of their level of scientific or economic development, and shall be the prefecture of all human race, as the Outer Space Treaty of 1967 declared.
On a similar note, recently, China entered the space stations era. On China Aerospace Day on April 23, 2019, the CMSEO (China Manned Space Engineering Office) disclosed a video of the progress of the CSS for the first time. This marked China’s Manned Space Project’s entry in the “space station era” as it persists to advance its space station technology. By 2022, the Chinese space station “Tiangong” would formally complete the on-orbit assembly task and befall a national space lab for the long-term, in context to assist large-scale and multidimensional space science experiments.
