    Default China makes progress in space

    So, Communist China, a state-oriented economy with a massive central government is literally reaching for the stars while Western Capitalist elites' primary concern is how to grow their already fat asses by doing as little work as possible.

    And they're even doing it with gender equality in mind!

    This mission, the fifth manned venture by China and scheduled to be the longest, is designated Shenzhou-10.

    It is the latest step in China's plan to eventually put a permanently manned station above the Earth.

    Tiangong-1 is the demonstrator. It was launched in 2011 to provide a target to test rendezvous and docking technologies.

    The Shenzhou-9 crew - which included China's first female astronaut, Liu Yang - hooked up with the module for nearly 10 days in June 2012.

    The "manned station" stuff is just hype.
