China Invites Foreign Researchers To Conduct Experiments On Space Station

“The China Space Station belongs not only to China, but also to the world,” said Ambassador Shi Zhongjun, representative of China to the United Nations and other International Organizations in Vienna. He added, “Outer space should become a new domain for promoting the common interests of everyone, rather than a new battlefield for competition and confrontation.”

The Space Agency described three types of orbital experiments that could be conducted on the CSS. They can conduct experiments inside by CSS by utilizing experiment payloads developed by selected applicants, or by utilizing experiment facilities provided by China, or conducting experiments outside the CSS by utilizing payloads developed by the applicant nation.

Public and private organizations including institutes, academies, universities and private enterprises with a scientific orientation are eligible to apply by the end of August, the Space Agency said.
