    That is intriguing and not all that surprising.

    Now I know I'm out of the loop. I didn't know they claimed this achievement. I bet they could put twice as many people in the ISS if they sent Chinese guys and gals. Fuck making it bigger send smaller people.

    Eh, there's something fishy about this whole thing.

    Is that really footage that the Chinese government published as their actual spacewalk, or is it just a montage of training shots that somebody cut together and tried to pass off as official? I'm really pro nor anti-Chinese in this case, but people have done even more dishonest things than that in attempts at disinformation.
