Apart from Soviet Union and the United States, China becomes the third nation to send human to space. Although we are lag behind them for 42 years, we also make it finally. China's first astronaut has landed back on Earth after an historic mission in which he orbited the globe 14 times. It is a big step in Chinese history.

Thank you very much. I hope China will cooperate with United State soon, so that human can develop a higher standard of technology in space travel. At that time, we are all benefit from it.

And your country did an excellent job on their own, Eccentric! Smile Now, Yang Liwei will go down in history as the first Chinese man in space. I also heard that China is planning on sending a man to the moon.

china is just a beginner and has a long way to go .what china is doing is just repeating what russia and america had done forty years ago .it may take a very long time to launch a manned spacecraft to the moon for china . people are debating on why china should send a man to the moon these days ,for such a mission need not only high technology but also a lot of money .

You know, it may be that China will take over the lead in re-establshing a presence in space. Russia is broke, the US sprogram is riddled with safety and design problems that may take us years to recover from. If China can manage to incorporate those private businesses that want to take it to space, they may just move up. When people see that others are making money in space, things will change on a faster pace.

Now...will the US military/industrial complex ALLOW China to do that? That is an entirely different question.

Why not? China already put a man in space and I don't see the US protesting. And it's not like America would worry about China DEVELOPING nuclear weapons. China already have nuclear weapons.

Sending a man to space is just like operating an Olympic Game in Beijing, both activities can raise our national glory. I know space journey will spend a lot of money, Russia and United State still can not recover from the space race since 60ís so far. However, I still satisfactory to see a Chinese in space. Itís very exciting, you know? He is our hope! He made our hope success.
