Curiously while in the Western there's this whole imminent-threat-in-space propaganda, China is running things up to put the first module of its soon-to-be space station TIANGONG 1, in orbit. The huge rocket Long March 2F is ready to launch:


China is making final preparations to launch its first space lab module — a prototype for a future space station — this week, state media reported. The unmanned Tiangong 1 ("Heavenly Palace") module was scheduled to lift off between Sept. 27 and 30, but a forecasted cold weather front has pushed the targeted launch date back to Sept. 29 or 30. The module will launch on a Chinese Long March 2F rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in Northwest China.

Did you notice the awkward tricky comment of the Brit reporter, implying about the Chinese anatomy: "When it comes to the race to space... size matters."

that rocket looks awesome. I agree however with the comment that this will be twisted by US of Aggression into nothing more than another "cold war" directive to increase military spending
