I changed accounts.
If China is smart, they'll privatize + globalize their space exploration so that the world buys their shuttles from them at a cheaper price than local space programs would cost.

And then they say I'm paranoid for thinking that China is going to buy us. All of us.

I'm curious what the other space-faring agencies (other than NASA) are doing to compete....
Final Fantasy, Foreign Policy, and Bollywood. Helluva combo, that...

^ Outside Russia (which is upgrading to like the sixth generation of Soyuz), nothing of any prominence has emerged in the news out of Europe or Japan.

I read somewhere that NASA's ordering a new big rocket. Satern V sized rockets. Back to the moon sized rockets "Screw you China!" sized rockets.

EDIT- not the original article, just one about there budget, but it mentions the new heavy-life rocket. http://blog.al.com/space-news/2011/09/nasa_tells_contractors_space_l.html

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
