However, China's future space station is about to change everything. That's significantly smaller than the core section of the ISS, but the additional size does mean Tiangong-2 can support up to three astronauts.

While most of us are still trailing behind with 4k televisions or sets with a likely much lower resolution, NASA sent a Helium RED 8k ultra high definition (UHD) camera to the International Space Station to capture some wonderful videos.

Roscosmos said Tuesday that one of three computers in the station's Russian module has failed.

"This new footage showcases the story of human spaceflight in more vivid detail than ever before", said Dylan Mathis, communications manager for the International Space Station Program at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston said in a statement. The station, whose construction will be completed in 2022, will be open to astronauts of all countries.

China just showed the world that it's upping its space exploration game with the introduction of the Tiangong Space Station.

Research institutes, universities, and public and private companies have been invited to propose projects. "The possibility for them (thanks to China) to send payloads on a platform of manned flight and conducting experiments is something that's extremely valuable", he observes.

According to Bill Ostrove, on the other hand, despite the significant achievements that EU, China, Japan, and Russian Federation make, the United States will remain the most significant power in space exploration.

It has received 40 plans from 27 countries and regions, according to state media.

The European Space Agency has sent astronauts to China to receive training in order to be ready to work inside the Chinese space station once it is launched.

"I'm sure over time China will be successful developing partnerships", said Bill Ostrove, space analyst with US-based Forecast International consultancy.

"Despite a lot of talk of the opposite, the United States remains the most dominant power in space right now".

"Many countries, and increasingly private companies and universities, have space programs, but can not afford to build their own space station", he said.
