Four bases of launching are in operation in the Chinese territory: the Centers of Launchings of Satellite of Jiuquan (of where the manned missions had broken all), Xichang, Taiyuan and Wenchang, all subordinate to the CNSA (SPACEDAILY, 2010). SIMILARITIES WITH THE SPACE PROGRAM RUSSIAN the target of the Chinese space program presents great similarities with the Russian space program, over all of the initial time of this, as much in systems as in methodology. As it happened in the first years of the Soviet space program, the first chosen Chinese to go up to the space are, not only military, but you officiate of the Air Force (SPACEFACTS, 2010a, 2010b and 2010e). Ademais, even so the Chinese space program is declared pacific, the management happens in military scope, as in the Soviet space program (WALNUT, 2005). This is the main factor so that, as well as in the case of Russia, it has a concern in launching satellites of espionage, whose purpose is the attainment of images of the terrestrial surface, over all of considered nations enemy. In this particular o it programs space Chinese in common presents something also with the United States, Germany, Anger, Israel, among others (BROWN, 2008).
In 2008 China blew up one of its proper ones satellites, using for this one sets placed in orbit. It was an episode where the concern of China in testing a weapon in the space was clear, although officially to place itself against the militarization of the space as participant of treated against the proliferation to weapons in orbit (BROWN, 2008). But also some similarity with the Russian space program is observed here. In the reality, although to make question to affirm public that they were pacifist in terms of space exploration, the Russians? as well as the North Americans? , in some occasions they had carried through military experiences in orbit.
