A privately developed Chinese carrier rocket failed to reach orbit after lifting off from Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center on Saturday, in a blow to the country's nascent attempts by private companies to rival Elon Musk's SpaceX.

Chinese failure, predictably not a Tremain thread. Instead it is a thread by the one who loves stolen elections.

More correctly, acknowledges human error as, well, human. Just like the very human error that sent the Zhuque-1 into the Philippine Sea.

WTF is that gibberish? Yes, I can read Urdu... but that isn't Urdu. You wrote "Wo Gora Cha"... which means "That White Cha". What is that supposed to mean??? LOL

Would you please tell me what you were trying to say so I could appreciate the joke better?

Google translates it as "see what".

Which it isn't. And I am sure that is not what you were trying to say either.

In May, China launched "Chongqing Liangjiang Star" into space, the first rocket developed by Beijing-based private firm OneSpace Technology.

As for China, they have another private company that launched successfully. And their own govt space agency rockets... the Long March series... are reliable workhorses.

So if any American loser wants to act like this is a fail for China, then I would urge you to remember our own busted NASA and it's busted space program that needs to beg Russia to take our poorly trained astronauts to the space station and back. LOL

NASA is not busted you ---- POS. The astronauts are the best rained in the world. And they don't "beg" Russia. They pay full price.

And that is only a temporary set back.

I urge you to remember that NASA put the first man on the moon. The first telescope in space and the first space satellite repair mission. First soft landing on Mars.... The first drones on Mars..the first man-made object to leave the solar system...

The list of firsts goes on forever.

Besides the beauty of the Cosmos the Hubble Space Telescope gave humanity its first direct image of what is probably a planet outside our solar system.

It's busted. Flat tire.

The astronauts are the best rained in the world.

At sabotage?

Everyone suspects they are the ones who drilled a hole in the Soyuz lifeboat creating a slow air leak to bring their departure date forward.

And they don't "beg" Russia.

"Politics should not have any effect on space cooperation", pleaded the US to Russia when there was a hint Russia might tell them to take a hike.

I urge you to remember that NASA put the first man on the moon.

There is no denying America has done pioneering work in space.

But today? Pppffffffffftttt.

"Everyone suspects..."

Is that is what all the voices in your head are saying, you ---- POS?

Russia does not have a suspect yet. It looks like it was done during the "inspection process".

The TASS report offers a few other new details about the investigation into where and when the hole was drilled. According to the source, all the components of the spacecraft were photographed during the final assembly process, and no damage is present in those photos. That means the hole was drilled either just before work on the spacecraft was finished or during its lengthy inspection period.

Russia still hasn't revealed whether it has a suspect in the investigation or any further details as to who might have been responsible. Early reports suggested that the culprit might have already been found internally, but nothing has surfaced since those rumors began to swirl

That is the "chatter" from the Russian space people, you bloody tapeworm.

The official story is whatever... that is because they have no evidence.

They have not been able to catch anyone because the culprits aren't Russian... unofficially everyone knows Americans in space are risk to everyone around them.

Don't be a dummy, post those sources! Of course you can't, because you're a) too retarded to do so, and b) they don't exist except on the far far fringe.

Mainstream aerospace is fully on board with the explanation that the hole occurred on the Earth since the astronauts don't have the proper tools to drill a hole like that on the ISS.

They still are with the planetary probes.

What "pioneering work" is anybody else doing?

Russia is using the same rocket tech as they did in the 60's.

China's is failing when they're not repeating what we did in the 60's.

Japan has a cool probe headed to an asteroid for closeups and sample collections.

The hole was besides the toilet.

As Americans like to spend extra long sitting on the loo (nobody knows why), it was easier for them to drill a little every day until they broke through. It did not happen in one loo-sitting. They had the privacy and the motivation.

SpaceX lauches rockets and then lands them after their mission. China launches rockets and watches them crash into the sea. See the difference?

China doesnt have anything in the modern era that they created themselves. Everything is a copy from more smart nations. And much like Pakistan, you see what happens when they try to do something on their own.

China launches rockets

And they work perfectly.

The rocket that fell into the ocean was a private rocket... not from the Chinese Space Agency. LOL

What is that even supposed to mean?

USA stole all it's space smarts from captured Nazis. LOL

Lemme see the brilliant people of the US sent out home grown technology over there for manufacture... because for some reason the Chinese could do it cheaper... and you are saying the Chinese are less smart?

Seems to me you should be looking at how long it took our country to go from failure to success with our missile program and halve that... at least.

People like you are the reason we are still mired in Afghanistan for 18 years fighting a less technologically advanced military... you assume you are smarter... yet there they are dragging you down inch by inch.

No, actually, you are. Making a military fight with one arm tied behind it's back is what liberals do and why wars are long and protracted.

Nazi rocket technology laid the basis for both the US and Russia to get to space. US technology got humans into space and to the moon and probes to mars, jupiter, neptune and beyond.

Correct. But even that would not have been possible without the damn nazis.

In fact, because the US was in a race against the Russians, we were forced to use the wrong technology compared to what we should have used.

Americans were reaching the edge of space in rocket planes. But then because of Sputnik turned to vertical launch rockets..... putting a man on the end of a roman candle, essentially, and blasting him off.

Rocket planes are only now beginning to be reconsidered with the Space Ship One concept.

Anyway, I said the US has done much in the space program.

But today... as things stand.... we have gone FLAT as far as the manned space program is concerned.

You're not real bright.

I'm Asian. I'm brighter than the average person. LOL

So making fun of China is kind of stupid... specially when Chinese launches have a near perfect record these days.

What some stupid people fail to get is that this was a private rocket... not a Chinese Space Agency rocket. None of THOSE are failing.

Dumb people....

China spends less than 8% of the what the US spends on their space programs. I encourage them to continue for the sake of science and exploration.
