Rocket's red glaring error: China sets space launch to America the Beautiful


www.guardian.co.uk

The lift-off was flawless. The orbit immaculate. But while China's leaders were celebrating the triumphant launch of Tiangong-1 space lab on Thursday, viewers of state television footage were treated to a bizarre choice of soundtrack: America the Beautiful.

Haha, very ironic that they are playing our unofficial anthem. They did get most of their space technology though theft via cyber hacking... Biggest transfer of wealth in history just happened and most Americans don't realize it.

This is rubbing it in our face in my opinion. Almost like a salute to us thanking us for providing them the technology so easily.....

Here is the video:

VIDEO


To mark the launch, the Chinese space agency and China Central Television (CCTV) released a proud animation, set to rousing orchestral strains, of the "Heavenly Palace" thrusting skyward, lofting above the Earth and docking with a Shenzhou crew capsule.

It may not be ironic at all.

It may have been a gift from us. We can infiltrate too.

They probably have no concept of the significance of the music played.

When I was working in the Middle east, I watched "Arabia's got Talent" and they had a teenage kid body popping and breakdancing to 'Jingle Bells'.


Peace..

Well considering that without America, China would be nothing...
If I were China I'd be playin America's songs too.

Face it, without American practically funding China's entire economy...
They wouldn't have a space program.

Without being able to import goods practically duty-free...
Having an entire country(USA) rely on everthing they(China) produce...
Shutting down American businesses and opening them in China...
Pretty much being co-dependant on the US for their income...



I'd be singing "America the Beautiful", too.

Because without America, China is nothing.
No revenue.
No taxes.
No funds for the Space program.

Well... there's a big sticker under that baby that says

[MADE IN CHINA]

I give it 91 days until it bricks. (Just one day over the general warranty period for anything made in China).

China is American project. It is supposed to play the same role America played.

Chinese for America is Mei Guo, which means Beautiful Land.

I think it would have been much cooler if they played Also Sprach Zarathustra, and at the moment it lifted off, a video of Elvis singing C.C. Rider was shown. That would have been very cool.

And then when it gets out of sight in the atmosphere, they could say "Ladies and Gentlemen, the rocket has left the Earth".

I can't watch the video at the moment but in fairness, was this a real launch or was it another one of those "top gun" incidents where perhaps they the played a video of a rocket launch that happened to have America the Beautiful as the soundtrack

China does stuff like this all the time apparently, I guess with the intention of mocking or upsetting Americans.

It's funny that America is so self-absorbed nobody really cares. We just ask about it and they shrug... who knows?

Strange cultural differences.

Is it because on its worst day America is still a hundred times better than any country on Earth? Or is it because the muslims have infiltrated your legal system and you will be rules by shariah law soon if not already?

Thanks for re-affirming my suspicions my waning colonial cousins. My point is China's technological sophistication is increasing at a rate that now has it rivaling America. America can barely afford to go to space, China can and America is unlikely to be able to keep up with Chinese advancement, this is a bad thing. My advice would be to just accept your time spent as the worlds only super power is coming to an end and maybe learn Chinese lol.

6 stars for that one post? Facepalm...

Without China, America would not have gun powder - or a whole bunch of other really important stuff.



we acknowledge the reality: that there is only one race, the human race, and our survival requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their brethren;
