I know that there are (at least) two space stations in operation: The ISS and the Chinese one (which I don’t remember the name now)
Imagine, that China, EU, Russia and USA agree on cooperating in the space and they decide to join the Chinese space station and ISS together.
Would this be possible? I mean, would airlocks "match" together and could they be joined together?
I am basically asking, if there is any recognised "standard" in how to build spacecraft. So, if tomorrow this happens could it be possible?
- India delivery ship successfully landing on ISS or Chinese Space station
- The same the opposite way: Russian Progress ship landing on China space station
- Any thinkable cross-joining of space ships
