Being a fanboy I for one wouldn’t mind seeing a new space tourism race:

China may enter space tourism race

“China may one day offer trips into space for tourists, a senior official said on Thursday, outlining the country’s plans to launch more rockets, explore the moon and even help farmers by using satellite transmissions.

Sun Laiyan, head of the China National Space Administration, also defended the cost of the space program, saying Beijing spent far less than the United States, it benefited ordinary people and was anyway a matter of national pride.”
