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.
