Product description


This comprehensive account of the last secret space programme in the world explains how and why the Chinese developed their space programme. As a result of the International Astronautical Federation Conference in Beijing in October 1996, information about Chinese space plans has leaked out. This work covers all the key elements of the past, present and planned Chinese space programme, including launch sites, rockets and launchers, and the different types of satellites launched. It assesses their future capabilities in an international context from a scientific, military and political perspective. Likely to become a significant player in the space business, China has announced that it plans to send a man into space before October 1999. The book includes a detailed bibliography of all papers, journal articles and texts relating to the Chinese space programme and technical summaries.
