Chinese Manned Spaceflight
as early as October. After years of preparation, China appears poised to join America and Russia in manned space efforts. Tons of details at spacedaily.com
. Rumor has it that the goal of the Chinese is a permanent lunar base
and a visit to Mars. Will it take international competition to get the US moving in manned space flight outside of Earth orbit? The Space Exploration Act of 2003
sits as a bill in Congress, awaiting support. Will children dream of being a Yuhangyuan
(Chinese term for space explorer) instead of an astronaut or cosmonaut?
