To repeat:

The non-existence of the V-2 wouldn’t have saved such losses, it would have multiplied them.

Back on topic:


The first module for China’s planned space station has passed a final review, but the project continues to suffer launch vehicle-related delays.

The China Manned Space Agency (CMSA) announced Sept. 6 that the 20-metric-ton ‘Tianhe’ module design and prototype had passed final reviews Sept. 2. The flight model would be manufactured in the near future.

Tianhe (‘Harmony of the Heavens’) is the core module for the Chinese Space Station (CSS) and will control the station’s orbit and attitude and function as the main astronaut quarters.

When Tianhe will launch is still unknown. According to previous official statements the first of three modules for the space station was to be launched in 2020, with the complex to be completed by ‘around 2022’.

The ‘around 2022’ time frame had not changed despite ongoing delays in readying the launch vehicle required for the project, suggesting a more compressed schedule.

The timeline for completion has however now shifted to ‘2022-2024’, according to Qi Faren, chief designer of the Shenzhou spacecraft which has facilitated China’s human spaceflight missions.

Qi provided media with the new timeline at a satellite navigation and location services conference in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, Sept. 10.

Qi added that the first flight of the CSS project would be the test launch of the Long March 5B, now expected in the first half of 2020. If successful, that launch would clear the way for launch of the Tianhe module.

The Long March 5B test flight will carry an uncrewed version of a next generation spacecraft for human spaceflight. The successor to the 7.8-metric-ton Shenzhou will feature partial reusability and have a maximum launch mass of around 23 tons.

Two bits in there. The flight article appears to NOT have been built. They have only built the test articles. Second, the new space capsule will fly quite soon: next year.

Chinese engineering is the best in the World right now. It's not just the quantity of scientists and engineers. It's their education system is light years ahead of the United States. This is clearly China's century.


American education system got destroyed by greed, lust for power, overworked, and over taxed. You don't have inventors recruiting people anymore. People are forced to sign up and expect to pay for it.

Operation Paperclip? LOL , those Nazi's were Very Happy to Help the U.S. Space Program . Better than Death by Hanging For War Crimes I Guess.....


I don't think any of the Paperclip scientists were being charged with war crimes. If anything, some of them were (quietly) partially responsible for the downfall of Nazism.


MK Ultra and biological weapons scientist should've been shot in the gulag to be honest.

Perhaps, but that would have been well postwar. MKUltra started in '53 and the Japanese & Russians were more into CBW than the Germans.

All US had to do was research counter measures and boycott for the allies. Not even China like CBW since Japans Unit 731. Communist China will still be an ally against USSR. USSR had their own MK Ultra called sleeper agents. That is what led to its downfall. Just like Nazi Germany experiments. You cannot compare USSR with communist China. Both may have the same words, but they are two different systems.

Just as NK is not democratic or US not a real democracy today.


Nobody likes Mad science. That is the first thing since the end of WW1 with Germans chemical weapons.
