Inflatable burst test performed.
"Ultimate Burst Pressure" test on a mockup of its low-Earth orbit space dwelling.

The team was thrilled to learn the house didn't pop until it reached 192 pounds per square-inch (psi), exceeding the safety requirement of 182.4 psi.

China's New Space Station Has a Big Role to Play—Scientifically and Diplomatically
https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/chinas- … 31506.html

When the International Space Station (ISS) goes out of service in 2030, low-Earth orbit won’t be empty of cosmic labs. Already flying—if only partially constructed—is China’s two-module (soon to be three) Tiangong space station. Compared to the 16-module ISS, China’s orbiting platforms is a modest machine, but as Popular Science reports in a story that nicely frames China’s overall ambitions in space, Tiangong has a big role to play.

The station’s third module, known as Mengtian (“dreaming of the heavens”) measures 59 ft. (18 m) long and 14 ft. (4 m) wide and weighs-in at 20 metric tons. Set to launch before the end of 2022, it will join the Tianhe core module and the Wentian experiment modules, already in orbit.

– Phase 1: Space Lab
– Phase 2: Space Station

They are launching something else?

'Turns out Long March 5B (CZ5B) rockets will remain active even after construction of Tiangong Space Station (CSS), regardless of its uncontrolled ultra-heavy debris issue.'
