Congratulations to China on the successful launch of their 2nd manned space flight:
"Wen said in his congratulation speech minuets ago that "We launches Shenzhou-6 out of peaceful purpose."

This was live on TV here but I forgot and missed it! no doubt it'll be the main bit on the evening news. Enjoying the discussions on some of the local message boards the launch has engendered - from 'Aren't we great?' to "Shouldn't we be spending the money on the poor?". Isn't the ship a knock-off of an old Soviet Soyuz?
They're going live to the launch site and to the interior (very poky looking) of the rocket quite regularly on CCTV-1. Just watched a recording of the launch and the seperation of the vcarious stages. Now they're interviewing some scienctist explaing how it's got to navigate through a layer of old space junk.
Maybe *now* they'll straighten up that pesky wall. Seeing is believing.
I'm sure they're up to no good, those filthy commies.
There's no cheese in space.
of pics from the ever-reliable People's Daily. Am I right in thinking they've just Photshopped the two guys' heads into a generic space suit photo?
No, man, they're communists. They used GIMP.
No, they use a pirate version of Photoshop they bought in Hong Kong.
It's only the bottom two that look 'shopped to me, although in that case the fact that every wrinkle on their suits is identical should be a dead giveaway.
Hey a journal or newspaper photoshopping a picture - how dare you
