07-10-2016 13:06 BJT

China's second orbiting space lab, Tiangong-2, has been delivered to the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center from Beijing.

Specialist equipment will be installed aboard the Tiangong-2 for conducting experiments once it is in orbit. The lab will also enable two astronauts to live in space for up to 30 days. It will undergo final assembly and testing processes at the center ahead of its September launch.

China also plans to launch the Shenzhou-11 spacecraft, which will carry two astronauts, in the fourth quarter of this year to dock with Tiangong-2.
