Dear MEL Topic Readers,

What’s behind China’s space program expansion

About the same time as NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft flew by the farthest orbiting object of our solar system, Ultima Thule, China’s Chang’e-4 landed successfully on the far side of the moon. Did these two historical space exploration events take place coincidentally? Since NASA’s New Horizon has been in space since 2006 and its progress has been updated to the public, China could have known when the historic flyby would be made.

Also, on 27 December 2018, BeiDou Navigation Satellite System started to provide global services after the USA. Russia, and the European Space Agency. Now, the Chinese military and mobile phones can operate independently from others’ global positioning system.

Why China is so keen on space business? Will it bring in hefty return on huge investment?

Enjoy reading and learn what China’s space programs are about.
