  • CGTN published this video item, entitled “Live: Another space station – China’s space program a cause for concern or celebration?” – below is their description.

    China recently launched the core module of its space station that is due to be completed by the end of next year. It’s a huge milestone for China’s space program, and given that China says the space station will be open to all interested countries and international partners, it is a significant step in the exploration and peaceful use of space. But when you read many media reports on the topic, China’s space program is portrayed as a political threat or as part of a new Cold War “space race.” What’s fueling the fear-driven coverage? Can China’s space program be equated with a space race? And how can international cooperation be promoted? Don’t miss this week’s Headline Buster.
