Submission + - China to Snap 4 Space Ships into a Station (mingpaonews.com)

hackingbear writes: "According to a report by Hong Kong newspaper Mingpao Daily (poor Google translation,) quoting the Director of Jiuquan Launch Center, China is set to build a space station by snapping together 4 spaceships Shenzhou 7, 8, 9, and 10, to be launched sequentially. Though other reports indicates that taikonauts abroad SZ 7 will return to earth on September 28, the official said the ship will remain in the orbit to be docked with unmanned Shenzhou 8 and 9. Finally, the manned spaceship Shenzhou 10 will be launched and dock with the other three, completing the space station."
