Evidence has shown that China has the world’s longest-running observations of the sky. Obsessed by what they saw, Chinese people aspired for more knowledge about the heavens by getting closer to it even thousands of years ago. The dream of space travel has been rooted in Chinese history and culture.

When gazing at the beautiful sky overhand, Chinese ancestors were tempted to dream about a trip there, since a long time ago. They have made the remote fantasy into numerous poems, paintings and other art forms.

China is getting ready to launch an unmanned laboratory into space on Thursday, marking the first ambitious step to building the country’s very own space station. The experimental module ‘Tiangong 1’, also known as ‘Heavenly palace’, will be launched from the Gobi desert in China’s northwest. Officials have promised to complete the construction of the station by the end of the decade. The editor of ‘News of the cosmonautics magazine’ Igor Lisov believes China’s exploration of space is fueled by its desire to catch up with other countries.
