U.S. and China Resume Space Cooperation Talks Aviation Week & Space Technology 09/08/2008 , page 28 China and the U.S. are restarting talks on space cooperation as final preparations are underway for a major Chinese manned space endeavor. China is also preparing to loft the first spacecraft in a unique optical/radar imaging constellation to aid rescue and recovery from natural disasters around the world. The discussions, after a two-year hiatus, were held in Beijing in July between a U.S. delegation headed by Assistant Administrator Michael F. O’Brien, NASA’s international affairs chief, and a Chinese delegation led by Sun Laiyan and Luo Ge. Sun heads the China National Space Administration, and Luo is CNSA deputy administrator. Both sides agreed to establish working groups on space and Earth science, in addition to addressing a framework for broader cooperation, say CNSA and NASA officials.
