I hear that the Chinese have launched their very own space station; none of this international nonsense. They'll be able to do whatever they like up there. It won't be long until it's manned. No matter that at its largest, it'll be less than a sixth the size of ISS.

It seems to me that the Chinese are following pretty close to Werner von Braun's playbook; get into space, build orbital infrastructure, and use that to expand into the Solar System. Too bad that the US forgot all that...

Agreed. When I was a child, my dad was very much involved in the space program, and I've continued to be interested in it, such as it has become/dwindled in the past years/decades.

What ELSE will it take for us, I wonder, to confront the competition in space and all things STEM-related?

I fear that we've missed the window, and will take a backseat henceforth...
