That's not to say there would be nothing at all, but the manner in which it is done is entirely due to politics.
    Wrong, it is economics...national pride plays a part, but so does the 'E' word...

    Serious now: Solar is right -- this is obviously 100% politics.
    Yep... And I think, it can resolve, at least the one of the main Chinese problems, I mean - a politic of population decreasing. When they build many space ships, they will send for about N*100 millions people to live in space.
    That is the reason.

    Yes. It's really something. At least for the Chinese around the world. Not only political, economical, but also historical. Think about the history of China in the last century. This event is a milestone of modern China, a more confident and progressive country.
