At present, the Mengtian lab, the Tianzhou 5 and the Shenzhou XV spacecraft as well as their carrier rockets have arrived at their launch centers, and scientists and engineers are making final preparations for the coming flights which will complete the in-orbit assembly of the Tiangong space station.

Serving as a national space-based platform for science and technology, Tiangong is now the only operating space station beside the International Space Station, a multinational venture that has rejected Chinese participation due to objections by the United States.
