During the past decades, China’s aerospace program has recorded historic milestones that included, among others, successful launches of unmanned expeditions to the moon and Mars, and an ongoing construction of a permanent space station.

In what ways will the Chinese advancing space technology affect our everyday life on earth?

And what are the geopolitical ramification of a much-anticipated China-US space rivalry?
