    While we were spending a TRILLION dollars (literally) on wars, China has been spending their money developing space crafts and next generation rockets..over the last 10 years

    They are doing now what we no longer can ... sending astronauts into space..

    fucking depressing...

    what happened Major Nelson what happened?

    They invented rockets. It's only natural that they'd catch up eventually.

    When they start catching up to our fried bacon doughnut burger tech, then we should start worrying!

    Unfortunately this is what you get when you have one country (China) that is focused on a goal like America was in the 60's, and the US who has no clear focus on what we want to do in a manned space program.

    We can't afford it. Too many entitlement programs, like Rome all Americans must live like royalty.

    When China puts some rovers on Mars, 2 nuke-driven satellites that are on the verge of leaving our Solar System, and exciting things like New Horizons, Hubble, and Webb, then maybe I'll get nervous.

    Until then, whatevs, yo.

    I love these types of fears. The USA has made some smart moves recently in privatizing entry into space and pushing government efforts at deep space exploration and other endeavors that don't currently have a viable profit motive for the private sector.

    The Chinese are probably copying Russian rocket technology from the 1960s and it's only a matter of time before they start losing Chinonauts in space, too.

    It's easily affordable. NASA costs Americans something retarded like 1% of all tax revenue.

    As a % of federal spending, NASA is at its lowest level since 1959, which is the year after it was formed and before the manned space program got underway.

    I was going to say this. But, yeah, this!

    What innovative shit is China doing?

    Until I read this thread, I had no idea the Chinese had a serious space program.

    I thought only the Russians were sending people to space.

    When was the last time you heard about Chinese astronauts?

    By the way, the president of China's daughter is currently a student at an American university. So we rock!
