Will China Get to Mars First?

The moon is Waxing Gibbous

Well, it sort of looks like they might.

Of course, they haven’t gotten to the moon, yet, but according to this article on Slashdot, they’re already making plans. And, pretty aggresive plans, too. I can’t help but wonder why they’re pushing so hard to get into space all of a sudden. Do they think it will suddenly catch them up to us technologically? Do they see us as weak and vulnerable, so they’re trying to take advantage? And, how are they getting all this development done? Is someone passing them secrets? Again?!

Actually, I don’t think it’s a bad thing. After all, it might just spur us on to greater heights in that neglected arena. Maybe they’ll come up with some interesting, new astronaut meals! The Chinese have always been food innovators. It might just be the best thing to happen to our space program!
