Well, the Chinese have now announced their 100 day ountdown to a mission to put man in space. If they succeed China will be only the third nation to do so.

Here a re couple of articles covering the topic:

China manned space mission nears - BBC

'100 day countdown' to China's first astronaut - New Scientist

What does anyone else feel about this development? Will the Chinese space-race contribute to our general achievements in science and technology, and the general dream of manned missions beyond the moon?

Or is this a worrying military development, that will allow China to more directly face against the US in future coflicts of interest?
 
I'm sure I just replied no this thread elsewhere!

Here I go again:-
China wants to replace the Russians as the rival superpower. A new Cold War, anyone?
