Great OP, slayer. Awesome contributions Zorgon and SKL.
On a quick sidenote, Kinda Kurious' act of awe is silly. He is as brilliant as any person on ATS, even if i disagree with his political views from
time to time.
My take on this? We are in "joint shuttle missions" with Russia, while working more exotic technologies behind the scenes with China. Someone
asked why China isn't buying out the old Russian crap. Well....because the United States DoD is helping them create gravitational control
propulsion. For more information, look at my "Ning Li" thread. I am about the only one to really talk about it, so you can just Google "The
Missing Dr. Ning Li" and find what I know about this story. Of course, Zorgon is very well informed on the story, as well.
But the point is driven home by what Buzz Aldrin has said regarding China being the next space power, and the next nation on the moon. It may seem
comical, after their faux space walk footage of a couple of years ago. But we have our brightest minds working on it with them. On a side note, i
have begun to think that Ning Li is definitely in CHina. She disappeared about the time that Dr. Baker headed out that way.
