In Focus has a neat set of photos showing China’s aggressive push into space exploration. The photo above shows 3 members of the Chinese space program landing safely from the Shenzhou-10 mission spacecraft which spent 15 days orbiting the Earth.

I really wouldn’t be surprised if China ends up being the pioneering in the next few generations of space exploration. They seem to have everything in line to be successful at it: lots of money, lots of smart people, lots of government support, and lots of national pride to help push things along.
