“China Tuesday began its longest manned space mission with the launch of the Shenzhou-10 rocket, state television showed, as the country steps up an ambitious exploration programme symbolising its growing power.  The crew are due to spend 15 days in orbit. Beijing sees the multi-billion-dollar space programme as a marker of its rising global stature and mounting technical expertise, as well as the ruling Communist Party’s success in turning around the fortunes of the once poverty-stricken nation.  China’s programme is highly ambitious and includes plans to land a man on the moon and build a station orbiting earth by 2020.”
