A timely push from the "Axis of Evil" can help allay those fears.

If the GOP thought North Korea and Iran were working with China on a space program NASA would have the funds to expand the ISS instead of just completing it, and the money to speed up the ESAS, and more funds for other projects.<br />

I don't think all country have the same goal:military .<br />In my opinion,china concerns more on its economy than military.With the developement of space programe,all can get benifit from its tecnology.

I'm very encouraged by this. The US really can't afford to let the program and the VSE slip with these nations getting their buddy list filled up.

Mmm, you do know what Iran's space programm is like now do you.<br /><br />To give you an idea of the scale, they are going launch their <b>first</b> satellite 27 october. It weighs an awesome 20kg. It will be launched as part of a cluster on a Russia booster. They are building the astronomical amount of 5 satellites as we speak, all to be launched in the next 5 years. WOOOOOW<br /><br /><br />Get a grip please. <br /><br /><br /><br />If you want to get somewhere, you need to do it by yourselfs, not with increased budget but with competent management. And that has been lacking for god knows how many decades.

Well, Iran's space program has to start <i>somewhere</i>. <img src="/images/icons/wink.gif" /> I think it's great they want to get involved. The more countries get active in space, the sooner the day when mankind will step seriously onto other worlds to colonize them. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p> </p><p><font color="#666699"><em>"People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly . . . timey wimey . . . stuff."</em>  -- The Tenth Doctor, "Blink"</font></p> </div>

I'd be more worried about the Iranian's with a suborbital rocket that can land with pin point precision. It's got more real military potential.<br /><br />As for adding more countries to the space party. Bring it on.<br /><br />Let me provide an analogy.<br /><br />Amoung other things, my wife and I have a dog kennel<br /><br />Shameless plug follows www.kayndee.com<br /><br />Any case if we have a dog that doesn't want to eat, we put it into a crate next to another crate with another dog in that crate. We then put the food pan as close to the other dog as possible.<br /><br />The dog that wouldn't eat sees the other dog looking at it's food and quickly finishes it's meal. Since the two dogs are in seperate crates they can't fight, but we've introduced competition. The dog that didn't want to eat, will now quickly finish it's meal so that it doesn't lose it to the other dog, although in the case we setup, it never was in any real danger of losing it's meal.<br /><br />If the US is not funding space exploration the way I would like it to. I would cheer on other countries space efforts hoping that the US will see the other countries and "get competitive".<br /><br />I've called this a "tribal mentality" in other posts but it is just the way human or dog nature works.

Yet those dogs, when it's not feeding time, prolly get along fine, right? If they were working dogs, they would pull the sled together during the day and still fight over the food at night.<br /><br />Competition AND Cooperation, happening right alongside each other. That's the way the world works.<br /><br />It isn't one OR the other. It's both.<br /><br />Please, my friends, beware the fallacy of the false choice; it is a rampant fallacy in society in general, but we space advocates need to see through it because it's holding us back. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

My experience deals mostly with English Springer Spaniels, but yes, two dogs (mostly puppies) will play for hours and be best friends, but at feeding time they will get aggressive with each other.<br /><br />That is why we feed them all in crates. Then we never get a dog fight.<br /><br />Yes, spacester your absolutely right, that is what we need to make space travel really happen, Competition and Cooperation.

No, the Iranian satellite will be launched from Plestek on a Cosmos 3M LV. Its part of a cluster launch, together with other mini and nano satellites.<br /><br />
