Once again. China and its scientists have braved the new world of space technology. The sky is no longer the limit ......But China will continue to carve its own path despite innumerable obstacles placed in its journey by the United States. It is well to remember that it was the United States that barred China from participating in the International Space Station (ISS) project.We, the Chinese people will not be distracted nor discouraged by the continuous vile US efforts.China now has staked its contribution to the space age and will continue its efforts to greater heights.Congratulations again, Motherland China!
