BEIJING: Under criticism that its well developed space programme focussed more on the Moon while the US and India stole a march over China by branching out into outer space with voyages to Mars, Chinese space experts are now planning missions deeper into the solar systems.
Experts considered missions to Mars, asteroids and Jupiter - and a manned deep-space mission at a recent conference on deep-space exploration held at Harbin, capital of northeast China's Heilongjiang province, official media reported today.
"When exploring the unknown, we should not just follow others. China should be more creative," Liu Jizhong, director of the lunar exploration program and space engineering centre under the State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defence.
He pointed out that China still needs to tackle key problems, such as how to go into deep space at higher speeds; generating energy and power; and developing space robots that can work in the complicated space environment.

Chinese have taken the right step, they have all the technology & expertise in pursuing the project.

Why Chinese like to do what others are not? They try to be extra-ordinary, but actually they aren't

Indian tech for Space are at best.... made in china will fail again...
and a Possibility of Finding. ..Aliens Hiding there!
If NDA stays in power for 10 years, India will reach a high level of development and Space will be just another frontier where Indians will Excel. China is too Autocratic to show creativity. It's India which will be the Start up Capital of the World soon AND US which will lead the world in new Technologies including Space explorations
