China and the Space Race
China just launched a second manned mission to space. China continues to close the gap with the United States in critical areas of technology. As I commend the Chinese on this great achievement, I continue to worry about the long-term strategy that the United States is pursuing to stay ahead in this race. Unfortunately, we are falling behind. We can proud of our past achievements, but the future should be our focus. Unfortunately, that debate is not as vibrant as it should be.
