China's Space Program: The Diplomacy, Strategy and Science of China's Manned-Space Effort

The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

The countdown for China's first manned space shot has begun. The "Long March 2-C" launch vehicle was delivered to the Jiuquan Space Center on August 25, and the Shenzhou-5 capsule is being fitted to the rocket. A mid-October lift-off is scheduled.

Join three of America's top experts on China's space program to review the implications for America's national security. Dr. Larry Wortzel will discuss China's international diplomatic effort to "demilitarize space" and Beijing's underlying space strategy; Colonel Mark Stokes will review the state of China's rocket/missile technology; and Mr. Dean Cheng will brief on China's space program, capabilities and intentions.
