Tiangong 1 (English: Heavenly Palace) is a Chinese space laboratory, intended as a test-bed to develop the rendezvous and docking capabilities needed to support a larger, inhabited space station complex. The launch of Tiangong 1, aboard a Long March 2F rocket, is planned for late September 2011. It is part of the Tiangong space station programme, also known as Project 921-2, which aims to place a full-size, semi-permanent crewed space station into orbit by 2020.
