On behalf of all Americans, let me be the first to say CHING CHONG PING PONG!
riedquat
Eat my shit you fucking racist scum

rastarat
Zero g ping pong will be happening soon. And yes, Mr Chong will probably be participating.

Cena_mark
He wasn't being racist you uptight Pee-quat! "Ching Chong ping pong" Roughly translates to "Congratulations on your scientific discoveries. It is a proud moment for your nation."
Know what you're actually talking about before accusing somebody of racism.

So are there conspiracy nuts that claim the Chinese space program is faked like the Apollo moon landings?
Caminante Nocturno
Now you've done it, urbanelf!

I could've sworn I hit reply.

Oh, well.

5 stars for the century's new superpower.

Cena_mark
Well goddammit! If we're not going to be pushing the limits of space exploration then somebody has to.
Menudo con queso
Limits schmimits. Their first woman astronaut? Pssht. We BLEW UP a female teacher over a quarter century ago and were making Christa Macaulliffe jokes while they were still coming out of PTSD from the Cultural Revolution.

Raggamuffin
Oh shit they are going for a space victory!

China has completed SS Module!

Call me when they land on the moon.

As bad as our space program is right now, they're still 40 years too late.

Caminante Nocturno
Libertarians have no right to brag about this country's achievements, seeing as how they are largely responsible for making further such achievements impossible.

Cena_mark
Libertarians can appreciate the space program as libertarians are responsible for America going to the moon. Who built NASA? Who got us to the moon? Individuals with individual rights working hard, studying, researching, and doing all it took to get us there. Individuals like JFK, Neal Armstrong, and Chuck Yeager.
Was China going to space in the 60s? Of course not. They didn't have individual rights. They didn't have the freedom to make space travel happen.

STABFACE
^^^This^^^ is the most hilarious thing I've read in a long time.

Oscar Wildcat
Damn Stab, you beat me to it! Cena man, that shit is funny. Preybymail, read this comment and learn.

Also, for the spergers out there hitting the reply button; Communists and federal employees built the space program as we know it today. Now you can relax.

Cena_mark
Granted the space program its self was a government program and the Astronauts mainly coming from the military (The present commander of the Space Station is a USCG Captain) aviation was mainly pioneered by the private sector. The Wright Brothers, Charles Lindbergh, and Howard Hughes all accomplished greatness in aviation all thanks to their private sector motivations. (Except for the first trans-Atlantic flight, which was achieved by a Coast Guard pilot.)
The private sector made the greatest leaps and bounds in the field of aviation. It wasn't until capitalism itself was threatened by communism that the government had to step in and take the Russians on head to head. By beating Russia in the space race we proved that free capitalist societies are superior.

"Individuals with individual rights working hard, studying, researching, and doing all it took to get us there."

All using government programs to afford that education, researching with government grants, being paid by government contracts, at the behest and directive of the government via a government agency, NASA.

They weren't working in a sweatshop, but Libertarian philosophy didn't even launch the first satellites. Sorry, Cena.

Cena gets five Stars of Stupidity.

Nobody trolls like ZE CENA!!

Right now I feel like Eddie the Head on the cover art for Iron Maiden's "Number of the Beast."

Goddammit, can't we just be happy for these people without American Butthurt spewing froth all over the place?
STABFACE
You are goddamned right. Five stars for successfully docking two objects together more than 200 goddamned miles above the surface of the fuckin' Earth.

Competition with the USSR is what got us to push the first space race, and I can only hope that competition with China will end up fueling a second space race as well. It's about the only goddamn cool thing left to do as a nation.
Cena_mark
Competition, which is a capitalist concept will make us better.

Cena_mark
Its funny that countries competing against each other could possibly lead to more advancement than countries working together. It'll be like the people's interest in wrestling during the Monday Night Wars compared to now.

SteamPoweredKleenex
The problem with the US/USSR competition was that it allowed for things like McCarthyism, the lies about "the missile gap," defense spending the likes of which wasn't seen until Iraq II and Afghanistan, Vietnam, Korea, and countless other wasteful, if not criminal, activities all done under the blanket of "defending America against Communism."

It's like saying the economy prospered under the Hatfields and McCoys because most people owned gun stores.

SolRo
spending resources leads to advancement. that's it.

if you can lie to your country enough that they'll be willing to outspend anyone else to stay safe, then that will lead to more advancement.

if the country is smart enough to work with one or more other countries and their combined investment is more than yours, they will produce more advances.

Think the only advantage capitalism has is that it can print more money and has a higher credit limit.

SteamPoweredKleenex
Except after you "win," you're still stuck with this giant military-industrial complex that demands (and gets) more and more money, in spite of the "threat" no longer existing. Then you've got the added expense of combat with people you'd been arming for decades solely on the basis that they were "against" your enemy.

Advancements are all well and good, but much like our subsidizing the oil industry, it's hard to definitively show we've broken even on blood, treasure, and security, much less come out ahead.

RockBolt
No, competition with the USSR got us to dump everything into getting to the moon, and when we got there and realized the Soviets were not in competition anymore, we dropped it and spent 4 decades in low earth orbit, instead of building and advancing on what we spent so lavishly for.

What we need is the national will to go back to the moon and on to mars (AND STAY THERE) for the scientific and exploratory accomplishments that they are, not as a race that we stop caring about when someone wins

Jet Bin Fever
Make it so, RockBolt.
