If you have not heard, and aparently most Americans have not, China is now the third nation to put a human being into space. I have been following this story since I first heard news that China has plans to put a man in orbit earlier this year. I am a big proponent of space exploration. It is a worthwhile human endeavour. Many may argue otherwise, but this log is not about the pros and cons of NASA. So, upon finding out that another country had such ambitions was very exciting for me.
What I found interesting was the lack of interest by America. The only news I could consistantly get on the subject was from the BBC. Is manned space exploration pass
