China unveils its future space station

Last week, Russian investigators traced the rocket failure to a bent sensor and cleared Soyuz rockets for a series of launches, leading up to the delivery of a different set of spacefliers in December.

The results are in, one year after the Hewlett Packard Enterprise sent an off-the-shelf supercomputer to the International Space Station to test if mass-produced hardware could survive, basically unmodified, in the harsh environment of space.

The new station will technically belong to China, but will open its doors to all United Nations countries. In August, the space station's crew had to plug up an air leak in a Russian Soyuz spacecraft that's now docked to the station.

China just unveiled a life-size replica of the core module of the country's new space station at Airshow China, the largest aerospace exhibition in the country.

China says its space station will be open to all countries.

The CSS is expected to begin assembly in "around 2022".

Research institutes, universities, and public and private companies have been invited to propose projects.

Crowds gathered around the cylindrical space station module representing the living and working quarters of the Tiangong or "Heavenly Palace" which will also have two other modules for scientific experiments and will be equipped with solar panels.

The camera's ability to record twice the pixels and at resolutions four times higher than the 4K camera brings science in orbit into the homes, laboratories and classrooms of everyone on Earth, NASA said in a statement. The country's state media reported that China had received around 40 plans from 27 countries and regions.

While most of us are still trailing behind with 4k televisions or sets with a likely much lower resolution, NASA sent a Helium RED 8k ultra high definition (UHD) camera to the International Space Station to capture some awesome videos.
