"After the completion of the space station, space experiments and applications will become the main focus of the project," said Lin Xiqiang, deputy director of the China Manned Space Engineering Office.

"The space station can support space applications in and out of the cabin, and the payload can be adjusted in orbit. I believe the large-scale experiments will bring more important achievements with international influence and application value," said Lin.

Lyu Congmin, deputy chief designer of the space station's application system, said the space station will be a platform for more frontier space science experiments and applications.

"We have planned more than 13 laboratories and experimental platforms in the space station. A large optical telescope will be sent into the same orbit to fly with the station," Lyu said.
