China has launched an unmanned module containing living quarters for three crew on a permanent space station that it plans to complete by the end of 2022. Al Jazeera reports that the module, named “Tianhe”, or “Harmony of the Heavens”, was launched on the Long March 5B, China’s largest carrier rocket, at 3:23 am GMT on Thursday. Tianhe is the first part of what will become China’s first self-developed space station, rivalling the International Space Station.
