China Lunar Colony By 2020


[Media Source*]

(Space.com) Budget permitting, China wants to be able to put a man on the moon and build a space station in 15 years, a space program official said Sunday.

"I think about 10 to 15 years later, we will have the ability to build our own space station and to carry out a manned moon landing," Hu Shixiang, deputy commander in chief of China's manned space flight program, said in Hong Kong.

It seems as if China is becoming realistic about space travel, after they previously announced plans to establish a lunar colony by 2017, mainly due to the new energy source discovered upon its surface. China seems eager to establish its presence as a space power, although they are denying any attempts to fuel the new space race between itself and western powers.

"It's not the competition of the Cold War era," he said. [...]

Hu stressed that China intends to explore space for peaceful purposes, saying Beijing "is willing to work hard with people around the world for the peaceful use of space."

Some analysts are wondering if China can afford sending men to the moon, although Hu dismissed these suggestions towards the media. China is wise by immersing itself within the space industry, as it is shaping how the world views this nation of a billion people as well as establishing itself as the next Asian space power.
