A China launched the spaceship cargo Tianzhou 3, which went towards the Tianhe space station project. The vehicle left carrying supplies, fuel and material for scientific experiments.

About six and a half hours later, the ship docked at the station, which today consists of only one main module, but which in the near future should have at least two other laboratory and research modules.

The action prepared the way for the mission Shenzhou-13, which in October will take three more "taikonauts”, as Chinese astronauts are called, to spend a season on the station.

It is worth remembering that the country has just brought back the first three “tenants” from the Tianhe space station. Nie Haisheng, Liu Boming and Tang Hongbo returned to Earth after spending about three months in Earth orbit.
