To be a bit more precise, a Chinese micro-sat will piggyback a ride on Phobos-Grunt...

I will wait till I see the Russian spacecraft in orbit around Mars.  They don't exactly have a smooth record on success in deep space, or that big of a record for that matter.

Good luck and best wishes however, the more the 'Gooder' for all of us.
I know they don't need it, but Crossfeed would be super cool.

Out of curiousity, how extensively do they justify space projects to the media? These two announcements (for example) say remarkably little about the intent or importance of these projects, but that might be the reporters' fault.

Hummm, I don't believe they say much more than this to the media...

According to mion70 there is a new launch pad being built at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center, certainly preparing for a increasing rate on the Chinsese launches.

China will launch a space telescope to study the black holes and neutron stars. It's based on the ZiYuan-2 satellite platform and will be launched near 2010.
