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...

Honestly, I can't wait until our government is entirely out of the business, and so the private sector takes over. The difference between Columbus and the Hudson Bay Company, I suppose.

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco...
