[i]"As a member of the Association of Space Explorers and a three-time space flyer, I am absolutely convinced that the more human presence there is in orbital space and beyond, the better for all humanity in understanding our place in a very limited one planet environment. We're all crew members in spaceship Earth. We've got to get that awareness into the minds of not only the people, but government officials around the world. So, more nations involved is better from that standpoint.
"I am sure it is going to stimulate economic and maybe even political interest and maybe even some contention about the prospect of another nation in human space flight, but I think it should be viewed as, if anything, a positive tension - if its a tension at all - but again I applaud the Chinese government for both the committment and capability to do so.
"We have to look forward to a successful launch and a succesful return of any and all taikonauts and Chinese flyers to space and back again."[/i]
