The rocket was positioned in the Hainan launch center as part of the final preparations and technicians will put it through several tests before sending it into space in the next few days.

According to the China Manned Space Flight Agency, everything is going according to schedule and both equipment and facilities are in good condition.

China plans to complete the Tianhe station by 2022, but will send at least 10 missions collectively to train in the assembly and construction in orbit of complex and large spacecraft, as well as in conducting long-duration manned flights near the Earth and large-scale experiments.

The facility will be able to guarantee the stay of three taikonauts up to a maximum period of 33 days and has renewable life support systems.

For example, the water vapor exhaled by the occupants will be recovered by condensation, while the urine will be recycled and purified to later be used as drinking or running water.
