A Long March 2F rocket blasted off successfully at 10:04 p.m. local time Thursday (10:04 a.m. ET) from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in the Gobi Desert carrying the lab known as Tiangong-2, which translates to 'heavenly vessel,' according to state media China Central Television.'

Meanwhile, the ISS will be decommissioned in 2024.
