Yesterday’s People’s Daily, a newspaper that is the organ of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CCP), is reporting that China is close to a lunar landing capability.
“After years of development, China’s space technology is close to moon landing capability,” said Fu Yiqing, space expert and consultant to the Shanghai Institute of Space Propulsion (SISP).
That says it all. The article is a good summary of where the Chinese see their Moon program.
Well, we can all be glad that at least the Russians, Chinese and Indians get it that human space flight is important enough to focus on. The good news is this demonstrates that the human race is not completely devoid of intelligence. It just seems that the top leadership of our own nation’s space agency is lacking in that trait.
