U.S. Space Force general: China has 'staggering' progress in space

According to Lieutenant General of the US Space Forces Nina Armagno, Beijing has achieved stunning success in military space technology, reports Reuters.


China, which has been behind the United States and Russia (formerly the USSR) for many years, is rapidly catching up, Armagno notes.

The Chinese have advanced very far in the development of satellite communications technology, as well as in the development of reusable spacecraft, which can be used for military purposes, the general said.

I think they absolutely can catch up and overtake us (USA)

Armano said.

In addition, according to the American general, Beijing is developing technologies to extract natural resources from small planets and asteroids.

According to Reuters, Beijing even compared Mars and the Moon to disputed islands in the South China Sea, which China claims as its own.

Armagno stressed that China is the only country trying to change the international order. Apparently, the general does not know about the actions and plans of his country. According to her, in order to achieve its goals, China is gaining economic, military and technological power.

Recall that China's space program dates back to 1956. In 1970, the first Chinese satellite was launched. Today, China has taken the lead in a number of areas in the development of space technology. Beijing has satellites of almost all types, as well as launch vehicles of various designs. China is already launching interplanetary stations to the Moon and Mars.

      I will soon be 70 years old and I don’t remember any active participation of the USSR and Russia in the fate of the PRC ... After Stalin’s death, relations with China were more than strained ...
      Today, Russia can help China only with territories and resources ... They have plenty of the rest ...

        It's just that not all areas of technical cooperation are being reported much.
        About something it is impossible, about something the "public" is not interested.
        At least the entire electrovacuum industry in China was originally from the USSR.

          The Chinese honor the USSR
          May 10, 1943 - the day of the invention of electroerosive processing of materials by Professor Academician B.R. Lazarenko in the former USSR. We, Chinese scientists, engineers, technicians and workers who are engaged in EDM materials, always remember the inventor-professor on this historic day.

          Putin (like all his entourage) also comes from the USSR. I was also born in the USSR. Only he believes that in the USSR, apart from galoshes, nothing was produced, and I believe that under his rule, even galoshes are produced in China.

        The most important thing that the Soviet Union did was to help the communists seize power in China. Everything else, economic development, etc. this is a consequence.
        If now some force would help to topple the oligarchs and bring real communists, and not the Communist Party headed by Zyuganov, to power, then Russia would catch up with China in 20-30 years.

    Capable of changing international order.
    And these abilities are visible to the naked eye in the economy, and in industry, and in the military sphere and in space ...
    Willpower and interests of the state, prevailing over the mercantile and selfish.
