China's Space Industry

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: Reuters)

The first Chinese customer, surnamed Jiang from the booming southern city of Shenzhen, had already put down a deposit of more than 1 million yuan ($120,800) for a zero-gravity thrill ride, the Beijing Morning Post said, quoting an executive from the U.S.-based Space Adventures.

"If everything goes smoothly, he will fly into space in 2006," it said, noting that Jiang had signed up for a short sub-orbital flight that would take him to the edge of the Earth's atmosphere.

Although something similar is available to the U.S. (through Russia's space agency) I bet the Chinese will probably have a huge interest in this arena and perhaps dominate it--Unless Japan has something to say about that.

More below.
"Plans call for more than 20 Chinese tourists to be able to go to the United States to undergo ground-based space travel training as soon as May," the Beijing News said.

China became only the third country after the United States and Russia to put a person in space and still has lofty ambitions.

Unfortunately NASA still has not embraced this industry. Looks like I may have to go to China for a brief trip to the stars. Selah.
