China unveils ‘Heavenly Palace’ space station as ISS’s days are numbered

China unveiled on Tuesday a replica of its first permanently-crewed space station, which would replace the international community’s orbiting laboratory and symbolises the country’s major ambitions beyond Earth.

The 17-metre core module was a star attraction at the biennial Airshow China in Zhuhai, the country’s main aerospace industry exhibition.

Outside, China’s J-10 fighter jet and J-20 stealth fighter wowed spectators as they zoomed across Zhuhai’s sky. Back inside, the country displayed its fleet of drones and other military hardware.
