The name is Li Niu, if you wanna look her up. The movie is called "Feitian" (Flying), though its official English name is "Shenzhou 11."
"Silenced thunderDwayne Day revisits Edwards Air Force Base in the Mojave Desert which in the 1950s and 60s was a key test site for rocket engines as well as pilotsí nirvana for the testing of advanced aircraft."If you dig around on this site you'll see the genesis of this article. I posted a bunch of things about Edwards rocket propulsion lab and then wrote a short article about the facility.

That is most kind.As I mentioned, I've got some articles in the November issue, although they're short and not as well-illustrated. I also will possibly have a short article in December as well. I'm working on several other things too. Of course, I'm always working on something.
It's nuts that they aren't offering .PDFs of current issues as the norm, never mind the whole matter of Kindle and iPad versions.Bob Shaw
For what it's worth, I have *almost* a complete run of Spaceflight and it's my intention to scan every copy at some point and to offer the results to the BIS. It's nuts that they aren't offering .PDFs of current issues as the norm, never mind the whole matter of Kindle and iPad versions.
The name is Li Niu, if you wanna look her up. The movie is called "Feitian" (Flying), though its official English name is "Shenzhou 11." Trailer here: v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMjgxMjQ0MTk2.htmland a video for the theme song with more scenes from the movie here: v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMjc5NzY3NzQ4.htmlNow, does anybody know if there is anywhere I can buy some of the back issues of Spaceflight without having to import them from the UK to California? Not that I would mind, but I was hoping to get them somewhat faster. Amazon.com apparently doesn't even know they exist.P.S.: Does anybody know how can I post the links without actually embedding the video players to the post? No formatting but erasing the http:// from the addresses prevented the movies from appearing
The plot pretty much mirrors the real Chinese manned programme, past, present and near future, until the final 20 minutes or so when the need to up the pace means that there are a number of improbable or impossible events!!
