"China plans to launch more than 100 observation satellites before 2020. The Ministry of Science and Technology says a large surveillance network will be set up to monitor water reserves, forests, farmland, urban development and various events.

He added that China would produce a new generation of meteorological, resources and ocean observation satellites by 2010.

He revealed that China will also set up a small constellation for environmental and resource supervision and control."

It looks to me like China is catching up sooner than we think it is.

Not really, every one knows China is growing fast.
Besides, its easier to catch up then it is to get the lead.

I said faster than we think.

Chinese put a man in space about 3 months ago? Now they are planning to put spy satellites in a decade and half...now that is fast.

I doubt even the U.S. gov't would have thought of this growth.

your probably right, in the past few years they are growing alot.

For instance, China's oil imports have over doubled in the past 5 years, and its still climbing very fast.

Spy satellites

Ah so your not buying into the "set up to monitor water reserves, forests, farmland, urban development " story
me either. Nobody needs a 100 satellites to watch crops and trees grow.

I don't know about militarization of space

U.S. signed a U.N. treat preventing militarization of space during Cold wars along with Soviet Union. Don't know if that has expired or not.

...And also the chinese have the "Beidou" GPS system

Naturally this u.s.a independant GPS systems not only serves to navigate clueless taxidrivers in Bejing but has important millitary applications.

When the europeans were about to develope their independant Galileo system, the u.s. government applied heavy pressure behind closed doors to get "involved", wich resulted in the following agreement:
