China prepares for its own space station

• Terrence Aym
China is serious about its intentions to get to the Moon and its next step is to build a space station. Not content with the International Space Station (ISS) that's currently orbiting the Earth funded and used by the US, Russia and Europe, China seeks to boost its technical skills and national status. It also plans on using the station as a stepping stone towards a lunar base and eventually mining operations for Helium-3 an element that can be used as fuel for fusion reactors. Recently, both China and Russia have gone on record with their goals to mine the substance that some experts estimate to have trillions of dollars of value.
