Came home from my Chinese Network meeting just in time 

to watch the launching of the Chinese Rocket on live China 

channel 9.

Chinese rocket launch marks giant leap towards space station

China launched its longest-ever space mission on Tuesday, marking another milestone on its path towards developing its own space station.
Shenzhou-X lifted off at 5.38pm from the space centre near the northwestern town of Jiuquan with three astronauts on board. They will stay in space for 15 days, the China Manned Space Engineering Office said.

Like my grand dad, I am proud to be a Chinese.
