Chinese Astronauts Dock With Tiangong 1 Space Platform | News & Opinion | PCMag.com:
When I was a kid the USSR put Sputnik in orbit as the first manned satellite and people in the US were shocked, outraged, and DEMANDED that we keep pace and exceed the USSR on the "high frontier".
Today? We are barely aware that that the Chinese Space Program is moving forward while we have to hitch rides to the "Dying Western Civilization Station".
We are so out of touch and so in decline that we completely lack any sense at all of our condition.
Sad how quickly a great nation fades from the world stage.
