China is serious about space.  We need to get serious too.  Thank God for Elon Musk. ( post in memory of Mike Nofsinger, who would be pulling his hair out over this, if he had any left. 🙂  )

Is it even a weapon?  Sadly, I despair that the US will get serious about military and technology development.

And we need to be too.

Example 1

Example 2

Now, none of this is stuff the US hasn’t done, but the Chinese have already caught up technologically in a lot of areas.  There is no reason to believe that they won’t catch up in space, and quickly.

ULA and Blue Origin are having trouble delivering engines for their new launch platform.

The Chinese are looking to build a moon lander.  Hopefully Elon will get there before them.

A Russian rocket is going to fall out of orbit and burn up. (metaphor alert)

I noted here that the Chinese had launch their first manned space mission in 5 years. The three man crew successfully reached the Chinese space station module.  The race is on. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

The space race is on.  China just launched the first three astronauts to the first module of their space station.  They will spend the next few years constructing it.  China is serious and we need to be too. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)
