China sent 3 astronauts to their experimental space laboratory this morning (see http://news.yahoo.com/chinas-latest-manned-space-mission-blasts-off-094410665.html).  

We discussed the implications of China’s space efforts on the U.S. at a forum last summer (see http://www.marshall.org/article.php?id=1110) as well as their military ambitions in space (http://www.marshall.org/article.php?id=1181).
