Europe won’t send astronauts to China’s space station after all

A European visit to China’s off-Earth outpost is no longer in the cards, at least in the relatively near future.

The European Space Agency (ESA) had been preparing its astronauts for possible missions to China’s three-module Tiangong space station.
