China’s space exploration program continues to post impressive accomplishments. On Friday, June 29, the George Marshall Institute and the Space Enterprise Council will host a discussion about China’s activities and plans and their implications for the U.S.

Is a new space race emerging? Will the U.S. begin to place greater urgency on its own space exploration efforts in response to China? Does the Chinese program present other national security or geopolitical concerns? Why has China elected to prioritize space activities?

These questions and others will be considered by:

* Kevin Pollpeter, Deputy Director, East Asia Program/Defense Group Inc.

* Leslee Gilbert, Vice President at Van Scoyoc Associates, former House Science Committee Staff Director

* Dean Cheng, Research Fellow in the Asian Studies Center at the Heritage Foundation

When: June 29, 2012

Where: 601 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Suite 600 (Indiana Avenue
Entrance), Washington, DC

Time: 9am
