On Orbit and Walking: Congratulations to China!

An outcome of the focus in America on the elections was the Chinese did not get the coverage deserved for their outstanding accomplishments in space this week. They put a crew of three in orbit and their first spacewalk was successful.

Space buffs like me who grew up in the town that built the Saturn V and watched the improbable success of the American space program understand the exhiliration the Chinese people must feel.

Congratulations from the home of the Saturn V!! Well done!!
