That works great.
Why can't they just participate in the International space station, again?
Because they want to build their own to prove their amazing Chinese quality standards and engineering skills. In other words, it's going to fall out of the sky. Their 100 billion dollar train or whatever is a cheap Chinese crap engineering disaster. Some of their dams are cheap Chinese crap disasters. I think it's more likely for Nigeria to launch a properly working space station than China.
