China Space Program Accelerates

While it may be the 1930s again in Washington and New York, for urban Chinese it's the go-go Sixties with pop culture celebrating the advances of the Chinese space program (at left, the "Shenzhou VII" mobile phone).

On Thursday, the Shenzhou VII will lift off into orbit around Earth and test new advances in made-in-China space technology including a spacesuit for China's first ever spacewalk, air-locks, and rocket improvements. The lift-off will be broadcast live in a show of confidence in the Chinese space program.
