China's Space Activities
China is planning to launch their third manned space mission near the end of this year. They have announced a three-man crew and the mission will feature their first spacewalk. This should be interesting to watch.
In addition, China announced a robust launch schedule for 2008. Research and development continues too. Particularly intriguing is a spaceplane project. Some details were published recently, including this photo.
What do you suppose they are planning for a spaceplane? It's called Shenlong, which means Divine Dragon.
