Belated: China Gets A New Spacesuit Authentic NASA Toys and Replicas
(Hat Tip: Space Fellowship)

After previously cozying up to their new Russian allies, it looks as if the Asian super power is now designing their own spacesuits--in house.

(RIA Novosti) Chinese spaceflight research specialists have presented a new domestically created spacesuit to be used in spacewalks by the country's astronauts, the China Daily said Thursday. [...]

"The extravehicular spacesuit is now on board the Shenzhou VII at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center," the article said.

This is good to see, as it will make China more independent instead of having to rely upon Russia for assistance.

Unfortunately this news will probably not make Japan happy, who seems to be currently focused on satellites--both around the moon and beaming solar power upon Earth.

You can either visit the stars or watch them from afar.

But if you choose the former, you'll definitely get a better view.
