They were also launched into space from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in Shanxi Province. China has also launched Wentian, the first lab module of its space station.

According to local media, this new module will serve as a backup to the core module and will also be used as a powerful scientific experiment platform. Last year, China launched the Shenzhou-13 mission, a major step in the country’s young space program. It is becoming the world’s most advanced space program.

According to CNN, China’s space program was launched in the early 1970s, before America’s Neil Armstrong had already set foot on the moon. China has invested trillions of dollars in the space program and its results are now clearly visible. In December 2020, China successfully launched its rover on the moon and then in 2021 launched its rover on Mars.
