China plans to expand its space station from three to six modules in the coming years, providing astronauts from other countries with an alternative platform for near-Earth missions as the NASA-led International Space Station (ISS) is nearing the end of its lifetime.

The Chinese space station will have an operational lifetime of more than 15 years, the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST), a unit of China’s main space contractor, said at the 74th International Astronautical Congress in Baku, Azerbaijan on Wednesday.
