I enjoy keeping up with all that the Chinese are doing in space. It's good to watch the gradual unfolding of a thouroughly thought out long term plan being executed.

China is preparing to begin training foreign astronauts to travel to the Tiangong Space Station in the future. Previously, ESA astronauts participated in training with Chinese astronauts, so they could be the first candidates to fly to the Chinese Space Station.https://share.api.weibo.cn/share/353884815,4842661842784454.html?weibo_id=4842661842784454

During the Shenzhen-15 mission, it is planned to carry out 3 to 4 extravehicular activities for astronauts. The longest EVA among them may reach the upper limit of 8 hours for the independent working time of the extravehicular suit.

Next, with the support and cooperation of the ground, the astronauts of the Chinese space station will use the mechanical arm or through EVA to successively install many external exposure (test) payloads.
There are currently 4 types of payload adapters outside the Chinese space station:
Figure 1 - Wentian Ⅰ type;
Figure 2 - Wentian Ⅱ type;
Figure 3 - Mengtian;
Figure 4 - Large load, extended test platform, small mooring mechanism.

There are two standard exposed payload adapters for Wentian outboards, type Ⅰ and type Ⅱ . The two are slightly different in appearance, and the main difference in function is that one can provide certain thermal control support, while the other cannot.
Figure 4 is a schematic diagram of the external material exposure test device to be installed outside Wentian ♥️ . There are still many exposed payloads that need to be installed... Let's talk about it later~

It takes about 12 hours for the urine treatment subsystem to process a case of 22 L of urine, and the urine distilled water is then passed through the water treatment subsystem. The water treatment subsystem requires less than 12 hrs to process urine distilled water into recycled water.

The New York Times has a feature-length article out on Tiangong and the Chinese space program:

China Maps Out Plans to Put Astronauts on the Moon and on Mars
Chinese officials at a desert rocket base described plans for their new space station and for reusable rockets, as well as travel beyond near-Earth orbit.

Also sidebars:
Why Some Scientists Choose China’s Space Station for Research
A project led by researchers from a Swiss university highlights China’s ambition to make the Tiangong outpost broadly available for science.

A Timeline of China’s Advancements in Spaceflight

And earlier Shenzhou-15 coverage:
China Launches Astronauts to Newly Completed Space Station
After decades of military secrecy, Chinese officials opened their desert rocket launch center to a handful of visitors and called for international cooperation in space.

Any idea of the efficiency in recovery?

resistance exercise

https://twitter.com/SegerYu/status/1603831139097280512

I've seen these before, and they do a good job on the lower body. I hope this suggestion is allowed (if not, moderator please remove), for consideration on future modules or stations. But what Tiangong, and the ISS for that matter, needs is something that works the entire human frame, head to toe. I respectfully suggest something like the Teeter FreeStep, which does exactly that. My workouts on it make me use every joint and muscle in my frame. I'm sure that the engineers would be able to replicate its functions in a more compact frame for use onboard the station.
