its all political.
Its not just cause there communists. Its all the factors...Like how Taiwan is a US ally, we think of it as a seperate country from China...But China doesn't, and many think tehre building up there military to "re-take" Taiwan. Then there North Korea...Which is a puppet and China is holding the strings.
And the US hasn't nor will ever completely except Russia...partialy because there communists.
The fact is they are showing more Laisse Faire capitolist values then we are atm.

.And if thats the case...then they would have FAR FAR better tech. Would you not agree?
I dont think there interested in us because of our anti-grav tech...I think there watching us in much the same way that we would watch an ant farm.
of course the Wright brothers didn't copy an alien design, and I think as a civilization were pretty smart, and can overcome any task.
But I think Anti-grav is out of are reach...for the moment. And I will likely think that until they show off a fuel-less spacecraft. Or until I have a lot of proof to sway my decision.
I think we came up with props, jet engines, scram jets,& PDE's, And I think the best hope we (the average joe) have of being able to go into space is by using a space elevator, Hopefully one will be functional with in 2 decades.
Just for the record, I'm an Atheist.
Much of the chaos in the world to day is because of religion. (I'm mainly referring to terrorist, where their Islam religion tells them to die for it, and they will get 72 virgins waiting for them......
Which...BTW, is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. But these wacko's believe it and go drive a car rigged with explosives into a market to kill as many as possible.
The world would be a better place if there were no religions.
links please? and I would like the links to be linked to the US patent Office site, to the exact patents your referring to.
Beijing (PTI): China, which sent its first lunar orbiter to probe the moon's surface recently, will launch its maiden Mars probe onboard a Russian rocket in October 2009, state media reported.
Yinghuo-1 would reach the pre-set circling orbit and beam the first images of the red planet in September 2010, the state-run China Daily said, quoting a senior scientist.
The prototype of the probe was now being subjected to a series of experiments and its compatibility with the Russian spacecraft would be tested in May next, Chen Changya, a researcher with the Shanghai Institute of Satellite Engineering, said.
The 110-kg micro-satellite would travel 350 million km in 11 months before entering the planet's orbit, Chen, who is in charge of the project developing the Mars probe told a forum on space technology in Shanghai, the newspaper said.
The Mars probe, which has a designed life span of two years, will orbit the planet for a year and relay back the first images of the planet taken by a Chinese satellite. The probe would land on the Martian moon and return to earth with soil samples, it said.
China's lunar probe, Chang'e-1, launched on October 24, travelled 380,000 kms before circling the moon. On November 26, China had published the first picture of the moon captured by the 2,350 kg satellite.
Chang'e-1 will make a three-dimensional survey of the moon surface and analyse abundance and distribution of elements on the lunar surface.
