I am really excited about the Chinese Space Program. It has already achieved great things, and I am sure even greater things are to come in the years ahead. With plans for Space Labs, and lunar missions of their own, China will certainly be the next super power in space. Here is a site I found with some pretty detailed info on their program. It is just a geocities site, but some real research has gone into it.

China has just recently done what the USSR and US did about 50 years ago. do not count on them to catch up any time soon. They may dream big, but they do not yet have the technology to achieve their dreams.

They're probably not that bad off. I always liked how Aurthur C. Clarke had portrayed the Yankees, the Soviets, and the Chinese in Space. The Soviets and the Yankees had a respect for each other and more or less came to an understanding, and the Chinese were just kind of...Out there. It was rather cool.

China's first satellite was launched in 1970. It was called the Dongfanghung-1 (The East is Red 1) and played the song, the East is Red, continuously.

Comrade, I think any space program is a great and significant thing. The Chinese are doing well in this respect.

How about DPRK's space program? They've launched a satellite quite some time ago and they're especially good at developing rockets...

They launched their first sputnik in 1998 but it fell into the Pacific. They repeated the attempt in a few months and succeeded. NASA commented this fact on the 16th of September, same year...

Doesn't sound like they actually have a space program. Lame!

The Chinese space program is the subject of a great deal of over-hype. They have achieved an orbital flight by copying Soviet hardware in large part. They were able to skip a huge amount of R&D, thus giving the impression that they were making tremendously fast progress. They may be able to modify one of their Soyuz-derived craft for a Lunar flyby (as with Zond) if they can build a suitable launcher, which is no small task itself especially given their (and to a lesser extent, Russian) lack of experience with extremely large rocket engines, forcing them to cluster smaller engines for the same effect. The Soviet N-1 attempted this, to explosive results. Very difficult to do.

In short, China's in the game but they have a long way to go before they catch up with, let alone surpass the US and the steadily degrading Russian space program.
...and thus they were all equal, and they did all labor, every man according to his strength.
And they did impart of their substance, every man according to that which he had...

Modern Russia doesn't have space program.

North Korea has, China has, USA has, Japan has, but modern Russia doesn't have any.

Sure they do. True, they aren't developing any new systems, or adding any great leaps forward in science. However, they are at the very least keeping alive what was birthed from the Soviet system. It isn't great, but I am sure the astronauts and cosmosnauts on the ISS are appreciating it!

NO!!! WE ARE DELIBERATELY AND SYSTEMATICALLY DESTROYING IT.

We destroyed "Mir", then "Energia" and "Buran", etc.

Well, an inferior economic system can't support all the programs of the past. I agree, they have made some serious cutbacks. They are still doing OK with what they have, though.

Cheerfully saw such a forum space and such a post. It's true that China has just recently done what the USSR and US did about 50 years ago. But I don't feel China dream any big, not because I think China's technology is some advanced but the dream is indeed quite small.
I love today's China.

Hello guy,im from Shanghai.Generally you're right,but as for how big the dream is,im afraid it depends on the economic situations.And all dreams may change.
Yes, this time we celebrate May First under a sharp wind, the pace of events in the world strongly speeded up.

The official China National Space Administration site. It has a lot of good info. The 'Space Policy' section really outlines their short and long-term goals. Future Chinese programs sound very ambitious, and it looks quite promising for the future of Space Exploration.
