A Heavenly update
Speaking of ambition… China has passed a new milestone in its intergalactic dreams when it successfully docked a cargo spacecraft with its space station’s key module yesterday. That means China’s well down the line of setting up its own space station named Tianhe. Reports say astronauts will be launched next month for a 3-month stay on the station, but 11 more missions are needed to properly fit the station out. China is going it alone as it’s banned from using the US/Russian/Japanese-backed International Space Station. And some new pics have come back from NASA’s Curiosity rover on Mars. Are we the only ones who are a bit freaked out that it looks so much like Earth? #SquizShortcut
