    The saddest part is that so many people are stupid enough to think Chinese people don't pronounce L's.

    Look at how many are in this thread.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Near-earth travel is old. Next meaningful milestones in the space race are

    1) First MANNED foreign planet landing (i. e. Mars) w/long-term mission and successful return to Earth (exp. in 30 years)

    2) Hyperspace/FTL (subspace) communication (i. e. radio waves bundled in warp fields) (exp. in 65 years)

    3) Warp driven/FTL spacecraft (exp. in 180 yrs.)

    But China has just established an air defence identification zone over the moon.

    I wonder if Obama will fly two space shuttles over the moon ?

    I can expect FTL communication in 65 years? This is fantastic!

    The insulting thread title combined with the opinions of others just goes to show that Americans are brainwashed to hate China.

    Everyone in China is celebrating right now. This is a huge accomplishment for them. They went from a backward rural wasteland in the 70's to a thriving world economic leader, with 10% per year growth. Even when China does something right, ignorant Americans will find a reason to badmouth them about it.

    or communication with parallel universes.
    or something we can't even imagine right now, something as incomprehensible as the internet or satellite navigation would have been fifty years ago.

    It is an accomplishment for sure. And it defends the notion that China is to be taken seriously. We can set down and talk with them or ignore what they want and act belligerent. Intentionally fly bombers into airspace they have claimed, sail a war ship/ships provocatively close to their carrier and any other number of sophomoric acts of chest thumping, right in their yard, too. This soft landing is the accomplishment of three nations, no small thing.
