People's Republic Of China Astronaut Does First Space Walk!
History was made today as Chinese astronaut, Col. Zhai Zhigang left his spacecraft and conducted a spacewalk while in Earth orbit.
As proof of how 'west centric' the main stream media is, the event is hardly garnering any news reports in North America. Chinese, Asia and European news agencies are giving good coverage to the spacewalk. Unfortunately, it is being downplayed here!
The PRC is the third nation to achieve this feat.* The USA, the old Soviet Union and now China have all been able to send humans into earth orbit and have them conduct missions outside of their orbiter. Congrats to the PRC ... and SHAME on western media!
