Lion Roar Space 1/48 Tiangong 1 & Spacecraft Shenzhou 8 China's Space Lab Module Kit
Tiangong-1 (literally "Heavenly Palace 1") is China's first space station, an experimental testbed to demonstrate orbital rendezvous and docking capabilities. Launched unmanned aboard a Long March 2F/G rocket on 29 September 2011, it is the first operational component of the Tiangong program, which aims to place a larger, modular station into orbit by 2020. Tiangong-1 was projected to be de-orbited in 2013 and replaced over the following decade by the larger Tiangong-2 and Tiangong-3 modules.
