    The photo, taken by a camera installed on board the Tiangong 1, shows the scene outside the module.

    On Oct. 10, the Tiangong 1, China's first space lab module, released the first photo of itself in space. The photo shows half of this module. The surface of the resource cabin and relay satellite antenna can be easily distinguished in the photo.

    That is impressive. Maybe a future photo will show the module in relation to Earth.
