Aartsrivalen blijven samenwerken


NASA wil actief gaan samenwerken met China aan kleine ruimteprojecten. Dat schrijft de Chinese Academie van Wetenschappen na een bezoek van NASA-directeur Charles Bolden.

Bolden sprak in China met Bai Chunli van de Academie van Wetenschappen. De NASA-directeur was in Beijing voor het International Astronautical Congress en sprak daar met diverse hoge piefen van het Chinese ruimtevaartprogramma.

De twee grootmachten gaan samen enkele kleine, wetenschappelijke ruimtevaartprojecten aanpakken. Over de details van die projecten bleven beide partijen echter vaag. Volgens Bai gaat één van de projecten over het in kaart brengen van de aarde via 3D-satelliettechnologie.

Het lijkt onwaarschijnlijk dat de twee grootmachten ooit samen aan grote projecten gaan werken. Amerika is bang dat ze haar kennis verspeelt aan China, en dat China die kennis inzet voor militaire doeleinden. “Je kunt niet over ruimteprogramma’s praten zonder het over satelliettechnologie te hebben,” zegt een anonieme bron bij de Chinese Academie, “en je kunt het niet hebben over satelliettechnologie zonder het over militaire functies te hebben. De samenwerking loopt hier nogal gespannen.”

Geheime programma’s
Om te laten zien dat China graag de samenwerking aangaat, gaf Bai Bolden toegang tot sommige van China’s meest geavanceerde programma’s. Zo mocht Bolden kijken naar de ontwikkeling van ‘s wereld eerste quantumsatelliet, en kreeg hij lanceerbasissen te zien.

Ook Bolden is enthousiast over de cooperatie. Hij zegt “hoogst serieus te zijn over samenwerking” en wil vooral werken aan aardobservatieprograma’s.

Gevoelig reisje
Het was de tweede keer dat Bolden China bezocht. In 2010 deed hij dat ook al. Tijdens die trip bekeek hij onder andere het Jiuquan Satelliet-Lanceercentrum. De reis kwam hem op veel kritiek te staan, omdat gevreesd werd dat China zou profiteren van Amerikaanse ruimtevaarttechniek.

Amerika is er niet heel happig op om China te helpen met haar ruimtevaartprogramma. China timmert namelijk hard aan de weg in de ruimtevaart, en wil snel bemande missies naar de maan sturen. Als hen dat lukt, vrezen de Amerikanen dat China haar macht militair-strategisch in kan zetten.

De spanningen liepen toen zelfs zo hoog op, dat het Amerikaanse Congres het aan NASA verbood om haar budget in te zetten voor Chinese handelsmissies. Nu is dat verbod dus opgeheven.

  1. to the contrary, was built upon Christian iedlas. Read the constitutions of ANY of the fifty states, let alone the country, and you can see evidence of that. Yet CMOTUS (Charlie McCarthy Of The United States) goes on about not being so, and goes on about the “peaceful muslims” (Yeah, I’m sure there are some, but it’s awfully damned hard to tell since they are to taught to smile in the face of their enemies). He and Thuh Missus have each slipped regarding his “muslim faith”. “America is the greatest country in the world… I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.” Obama’s policies are deepening a depression, and has the entire financial system teetering on the precipice of total collapse through artificial props rather than allowing the market to self-correct. Good, formerly sound companies are collapsing while companies that should long ago have been shuttered or restructured live on.”America is the greatest country in the world… I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.” Obama promised to “spread the wealth around a little” to those idiotic enough to think that such a Utopian concept could ever come to pass. His actions to date have not spread any wealth, but have DESTROYED wealth. Small business is cutting jobs to avoid the burdens of Obama’s new policies. Others have closed their doors. Doctors are bailing out of the industry, eliminating jobs for receptionists, office nurses, and other allied fields. Wealth isn’t being “spread around a little”. It is being destroyed wholesale.”America is the greatest country in the world… I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.” And, speaking of healthcare, let’s whack it for everyone – “level the playing field”, as he so oft parrots from the varied podiums he squawks from. So, by his policies, EVERYONE will get shitty healthcare because, aside from the Gummint not being able to AFFORD it, no-one in their right mind would enter the industry! Work those hours for paltry pay? Shoot, no! Become a lawyer instead – get rich off of SUING the healthcare industry! Duh!”America is the greatest country in the world… I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.” An oil rig blows up (the conspiracy theorists say it was rigged to do so), and CMOTUS drags his feet hoping to “let no crisis go to waste” in order to ram another economically devastating tax onto the American people – even though oil washing up on beaches has no bearing whatsoever on the atmospheric CO2 Cap-n-Tax is supposed to save all us CO2-exhaling organisms from.”America is the greatest country in the world… I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.” I, for one, have had enough. If these people are still in office after November, I don’t know what I will do with myself…Sorry. Frustration level has simply peaked off of this one.

  5. well, Cannes earns its money from scam ads. so it’s not likely that they’ll do anything about it.but…let the future jury members read this and prevent it’s even shortlisted.let the agency enter 100 works in Cannes, win nothing but laughs of the industry and go bankrupt.

  7. Hello Steven—Would you be kind enough to answer this question for me on an unrelated Constitutional matter.Under Chapter 111 Section 76 (ii) of our Constitution, or any other section, could our Parliament pass a law extending the original jurisdiction of the High Court to include a provision that in the event our GG exercising Reserve Powers, our PM could appeal to the High Court as to the validity of that excision.
