An interesting story on BBC News website: US arrests four 'Chinese spies'
Four people have been arrested in the United States for allegedly passing secret defense information to China.

A 72-year-old former Boeing engineer is accused of giving China details about the space shuttle and other aerospace programmes.

But what new information were they hoping to find that they couldn't discover after a few hours on collectSPACE!

It was revealed today that at least one of several (concurrent but coincidental) spy cases prosecuted by the DOJ involved Shuttle technology -
In Los Angeles, meanwhile, former Boeing engineer Dongfan "Greg" Chung, 72, was arrested on charges of working as an unregistered agent for the Chinese government who stole trade secrets from the defense contractor. The stolen data largely focused on aerospace programs, including the Space Shuttle, prosecutors said.

All times are CT (US)
