Add a bit of Chinese space to your morning coffee or tea ritual! Our latest Tiangong mug design is unique to Dongfang Hour, and packed with details on China's latest space station.

A few insights into what you see:
  • The Tianhe core module in the middle, acting as the command center of the CSS and hosts the living quarters of the astronauts.
  • The two experimental modules Wentian and Mengtian dedicated to space sciences.
  • A Shenzhou crewed spacecraft docked to the forward docking port and a Tianzhou cargo spacecraft docked at the back.
  • The small robotic arm on the Wentian module is used to manipulate experiments installed on outer attachment points.
  • In the background, there's a small spacecraft in the distance: the Xuntian telescope. This is China's first large-scale space telescope and will be launched in 2024. It will be able to dock to the station when require servicing & maintenance operations.
For more background on the Chinese Space Station, we have dedicated episodes on our YouTube channel to WentianMengtianXuntian, and more generally to the assembly of the Chinese Space Station.
