Operation

A number of trials will follow after the final touches are put on the telescope. The telescope has been build in five years and is expected to begin its operation in September. Space programme has always been a matter of great concern for the Prime Minister of China.  President Xi Jinping has called upon his country to establish themselves as a space power. Beijing’s ambition also include building a space station and reaching the moon by 2036.

China insists that this programme is for peaceful purposes. The US defense department has highlighted China’s increasing space capabilities, but still they suspect that China’s activities are aimed to prevent enemies from using space related assets during times of crisis.
