China in Space
I'm always interested in what China gets up to with its Space Program and in browsing I'm finding some interesting articles. I suppose people here would know more about it than I do, but I saw it was not on the recent boards and well, I just thought to chuck the topic up there and see what falls out. I'm not China nuts or anything, it just seems that they might be the most shady characters in space at the present. I mean, nobody even knows what their space budget is exactly, so they could be up to anything.
