Australian intelligence and security agencies are investigating a suspected industrial espionage case at the CSIRO, the nation's top scientific organisation.
In revelations that will further test Australia's relations with China, federal police and intelligence officials are investigating a Chinese national who until last week worked in the CSIRO's highly sensitive nanotechnology laboratory in Melbourne.

Seems trusting the Chinese when it comes to technology and innovation is a asking for trouble. Nano technology is one of the most sensitive research and development areas in science today and an advantage in this field (especially for military applications) may prove decisive in any future conflicts. And when you consider the powder keg that is deliberately being concocted by China with their East China Sea 'creep', it's clear how military development (esp. on the Chinese's part) is something that will be of some import in coming years.

I guess this is why the White House forbade space science information exchange between NASA and China's space agency...

Yeah. Not unlike space fairing, that was about the extent of their knowledge of the subject matter.
