China recently docked the final module with its under-construction space station
By India Today Web Desk: As China completes the construction of its space station, scientists are planning to do life science research in zero gravity with astronauts taking the lead onboard Tiangong. China is planning to launch a monkey to test reproduction in space, according to a report in South China Morning Post.

The Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing is leading the development of the project and is responsible for scientific equipment needed to conduct studies in microgravity on China’s Tiangong space station. The experiment is expected to be conducted in the Wentian module of the space station that docked earlier this year.

“Some studies involving mice and macaques will be carried out to see how they grow or even reproduce in space. These experiments will help improve our understanding of an organism’s adaptation to microgravity and other space environments,” Zhang Lu, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Sciences , was quoted as saying by SCMP.
It is worth mentioning that while the module currently has only enough room for algae, fish or snails, it has been designed in a way to expand and configure for larger organisms. The report also mentioned that of the monkeys are sent into the space station, they will need to feed them and deal with the waste.
