Tianhe-1 - China’s next space station
SciNews
Published on Mar 31, 2018

Tianhe-1, the core module of China’s next manned space station, has been recently unveiled in Tianjin Aerospace Town. Zhang Hao, senior designer, space station system, China Academy of Space Technology (CAST), explains: “This is the core module of the space station. It's the master control section of the station, which controls the flight posture, dynamic property, and its manned environment. The large column-like thick part is where astronauts work and conduct experiments. The thinner part is where astronauts sleep and wash themselves, it’s built for astronauts to have normal daily life”. China plans to start assembling the station in space in 2020. The space station is scheduled to become fully operational around 2022.

Sizzy,  don't embed the images next time, attached them instead.   Members with low bandwidth can't see the entire image.   

I've' downloaded those images and attached them to this post for easier viewing.

The Long March 5B rocket to launch the Tianhe core module for China's space station is undergoing assembly in the port city of Tianjin. It is expected to soon leave the factory for delivery to Wenchang launch centre via Yuanwang cargo ships.

Is this launch also expected to leave a large piece of debris in orbit?

Besides, the rocket maker has recently completed a reliability test run for its high-thrust oxyhydrogen engine designed for the Long March-5B carrier rocket, which will be used to launch different modules of China's space station. The core module is scheduled for launch this spring.

Yes. The core stage will be temporarily in orbit and will eventually reenter by itself.

Damn shame they can't make use of it. I would imagine they've already investigated wet workshop concepts with it.

edit: this was kinda off-topic
