Human Space Project of China is going to the stage of space station construction. This stage involves a space laboratory which will be launched in near future, and the space station which will be constructed since 2018 and completed around 2022 or so, then operated on orbit for more than 10 years. This paper reviews the physical science items on board of china’s space laboratory and cargo ship which will be docked with space laboratory. It is related with fundamental physics such as cold atom clock and quantum key distribution from space to the grand, microgravity fluid physics experiment, material science experiment in microgravity condition, astronomy, and earth observation for geophysical research. This paper also gives a brief introduction of the research fields and main research direction of physical science plan, as well as main research facility and experiment platform on board of China’s space station.
