China seeks partners for space exploration

China plans to discuss with developing countries the training of cosmonauts and joint space flights, Xinhua reports with reference to the deputy head of the Chancellery of the Manned Spaceflight Program of China, the first Chinese cosmonaut Jan Liwei.

"Over the past 20 years, China has created an integral system for the selection and training of cosmonauts and developed the appropriate equipment. And we wish to share with foreign partners the achievements of Chinese manned astronautics," Liwei said.

In 2016, the Tiangong-2 laboratory module (Heavenly Palace-2) of the Shenzhou-11 manned spacecraft and the Tianzhou-1 cargo spacecraft are expected to be launched, which will then be docked. By about 2018, work will be completed on the creation and testing of an experimental orbital module, and in 2022 a program to create a space station has been completed.

Yang Liwei stressed that during the construction of the space station, China is interested in further expanding international cooperation in the development of equipment, space exploration and training of cosmonauts.
