China launches cargo mission to Tiangong space station

China's space efforts, so far, are strictly temporary, like ours. There is no permanent, no even near independent, human occupancy of, and effort in, the space frontier yet. One anti-space frontier, or simply cheap and unwilling, regime in either country, and all that country's space frontier history and effort will be gone with the wind. It happened to us during the Nixon Administration, and in everything since. It happened to China during the 14th century, and in everything since, until now, that is. It could so easily happen to both countries, thus, virtually instantaneously to all humanity and humanity's frontier future, even to life itself as to any future of energy, expansion, prosperity and survivability, all over again.
