Where's China? @@

China is currently building it's own space station in orbit and has recently sent up a team which included a woman - only remarkable since she is about the most intelligent/qualified person to ever work in space.

The US had to work as part of a team to build "the" space station and relies on the Russians to visit it since they don't currently have a usable passenger vehicle.

Sending stuff to mars is just a way of pretending they are still in the space race. The Chinese will be launching their first manned mars mission from their own space station, when they have finished extending it.
