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

  • A partial model of Chinese space station is seen on display at the Airshow China 2018 in Zhuhai south China

Several global space agencies launched the main module and first components of the ISS into space over two decades ago. 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.

In the Chinese city of Zhuhai within aerospace exhibition Airshow China showed a full-sized model of a future space station Tiangong, which translates as "heavenly Palace". It said two other computers can maintain the station's operation.

Citing China as a threat, U.S. President Donald Trump has launched plans to create a new "Space Force" to give his country dominance over rivals in space.

The station chinese space (CSS), also called Tiangong ("heavenly Palace") will consist of three parts: a main module along almost 17 metres (place of life and labour) presented to you on Tuesday, and two related modules (for scientific experiments).

The three astronauts will be able to live permanently on board of the spacecraft, with a total weight of at least 60 tons, and equipped with solar panels. It is expected that construction will be completed around 2022.

The country announced in May that the lab would be open to "all countries" to conduct science experiments.

China has already invited distinguished universities, research institutes, and both public and private companies to propose possible projects.

"Viewers can watch high-resolution footage from inside and outside the orbiting laboratory right on their computer screens", NASA says.

It has received 40 plans from 27 countries and regions, according to state media.

NASA and the European Space Agency delivered the first 8K ultra high definition (UHD) video of astronauts living, working, and conducting research from the International Space Station on Friday, to celebrate the 18th anniversary of humans living continuously aboard.

Should NASA invest in the creation of another space station or just rely on the future Tiangong Space Station?
