    the first module from China's budding Tiangong (meaning "Heavenly Place") space station program. It was just revealed to the surprise and delight of Engadget Chinese during a TV special celebrating the Chinese New Year. The 8 ton module is scheduled to launch by 2010 with two more modules (Tiangong 2 and Tiangong 3) to follow by 2015 after which Taikonauts will begin to stay in orbit. For now, the endeavor is meant to prepare for automated docking trials and to establish a presence in space -- a move that will undoubtedly scare the hell out of hawkish members of western governments.

    Congratulations to the Chinese. Western Space programmes' monopoly past Soviet era is living on borrowed time.

    China has set itself ambitious targets in the space arena. Good luck to them.

    It is good to see that the space is not dominated by US and Russia only. China and India are having some serious space programs as well.

    Oh man...another conspiracy theorist. The 9/11 theory, the moon walk all have pretty convincing arguments that can be disproven. Why most everything be a conspiracy whenever something substantial happens in space.

    Time will tell.

    China plans to launch Tiangong-1 by the end of 2010;

    Launch Shenzhou-8~10 during 2011 & 2012;

    Launch Kuafu man-made satellite in 2012;

    Before 2015, launch Tiangong-2 and Tiangong-3 space lab;

    just let's wait and see.

    Time will tell? Time has already told. The article already published, and the video is highly plausible.

    Time has already shown they lied about the first space walk. Honestly, the videos inside the SHENZHOU capsules look faked as well. The audio on them doesn't sound like they are in space and all they do is flip around those stupid script books.

    correction. not "fool-ya" ,but "fool-you"(忽悠“).
    you seem to have learn some chinglish. but that is not enough,because Chinglish is very helpful for your career in the chinese century.

    you should study more chinglish,such as Sablity(傻逼),Niubility(牛逼),Zhuangbility(装逼),Taikonaut(太空人),Victor Chen(陈胜) and Broad Wu(吴广).

    Is it that hard to believe that news agencies write before important events take place? The incentive to be the first news outlet with a breaking story is huge. How about when Truman beat Dewey in the US presidential election, but papers jumped the gun and pusblished the opposite? It's called anticipation.

    Only that this time Koji, it has a TRANSCRIPT of those astronauts in space before they even left the ground (the same transcripts which were published in Chinese press after the mission was over). Hence it's clear that the Chinese government had these transcripts ready for press before the launch even happened.

    Wake up and smell the tea! They published the transcripts before they even left the ground. It was fake end of story. The real question now is has China ever really put a man into space. There would not really be a reason needed to fake a spacewalk if they could. The Shanzou space audio doesn't sound anything like a transmission coming from space and they never demonstrate a convincing zero g display. You certainly never seen taikonauts floating around the cabin or anything allowed to free float except that stupid notebook that looks like its on fishwire and never allowed more than 10cm from their hand.

    It is just one of the massive technical erros that happened in Chinese inefficient state media.

    But it is not surprising that these transcripts were ready for the press before the launch even happened. During an important mission like this, what cosmonauts would say and do has been fixed way before the mission began. It is just like a procedure, they must follow it.
