The world economy has been shifting in China’s favor for some time. Their military is arguably the most powerful overall in the world. Once considered a true third-world country, they’ve been able to mix elements of both worlds with intense poverty and lack of technology through much of the country while also having cutting edge tech and a booming economy in other areas.
What’s not often considered is their space program. We shouldn’t ignore it. Not only are they progressing faster than the United States or Russia, they’re also rumored to be working on space weapons. This video by Curious Droid barely scratches the surface; we’ll follow up with more on China’s space program in the near future. For now, just know it’s worth keeping our eyes on, as I’m sure the U.S government has been doing. At least I hope they have.
