China's experimental space lab Tiangong-2 will have controlled descent from its orbit and re-enter the earth's atmosphere to fall into the Pacific Ocean, the country's official space agency said. After its solar panels are unfolded, its wingspan reaches 18.4 meters.

The two astronauts also conducted popular science experiments designed by middle school students from Hong Kong, including raising silkworms in space.

The second step was developing advanced space flight techniques and technologies including extra-vehicular activity and orbital docking.

On Friday, the Chinese space station Tiangong-2 was spectacularly decommissioned - it was set on a crash course with a remote patch of the Pacific Ocean called the "Spacecraft Cemetery".

Tiangong-2, translated into English as 'Celestial Palace 2, ' was launched in 2016 as a part-time spacial feature. On July, CMSEO stated that it would end the Tiangong-2 mission July 19 Beijing time, by keeping with an announcement on September 2018 that the space lab would be deliberately deorbited this year.

"The experiments on Tiangong-2 have laid the foundation for further experiments and research on the space station".

The spacecraft was 10.4 meters long and 3.35 meters wide, Xinhua noted, and was launched in 2016. It is created to last at least 10 years, but this could be prolonged through in-orbit maintenance, said Zhou Jianping. A test version of the core module has been completed, and the test version of the two experiment capsules is under development, Zhou said.

A total of 37 TB data obtained by Tiangong-2 has been provided to customers for earth observation projects in both China and overseas, according to the Technology and Engineering Center for Space Utilization of CAS. "China will timely report the information about the spacecraft after it re-enters the atmosphere to fulfil its global obligations", the CMSEO said.

It was meant to test technologies for China's greater space station operation, due to launch in 2020 and be finalized by 2022.

China is also selecting new astronauts for the space station missions.

The device was launched into orbit of the planet in September 2016 and worked in space for nearly three years, although the lifespan was two years. Hubble Space Telescope that was launched in 1990.
