A massive achievement by any measure.
I think its great to see a nation accomplish such a task, onwards and upwards.... literally.
I too believe that this is a good thing for mankind as a whole.
However, at what price to humanity.
China, Like the United States, is under considerable pressure regarding basic human needs versus space flight, and exploration.
Let us hope that the scientific endeavor is matched by a compassion for humanitarian needs as a whole.
