    No offence meant.

    With so much of anti Us feeling on Paksitan forums, why this elation over a US project?

    Is it a feeling that if the US recognises, there is this feeling of "having arrrived"?

    For that you should realise what a shrewd chap Mushrraf is.

    He is set about proving that in Islam women have some place - the message is for the Mullahs and to the world!

    Clever and intelligent a chap.

    Melb4aust,

    What's a little weight in a weightless state of affairs? ;)

    To correctt you Sir Ray Women have all the rights in Islam, Islam has given us all those right for which the women in the West were fighting more recently:)
    So the word "Some" you used sounds biased.

    Sir its better than a response from Indians towards us. There is sheer hatred and anti-Pakistan feeling on all the indian forums but depsite that they just cheer at the sight of Asma Jehngir and all like others cuz they speak against Pakistan.



    :P may be he was thinking how her husband may lift her rather thn thinking weight in a weightless state of affairs? :P

    Salim,

    Hatred of groups is based on historical facts. Many books have explained the good weather realtionship between Pak and USA. It will improve but with that many wars on "terror" we need to see how it ends. Politics are most of the time dirty. People react on that. If you do not understand that then skip posting.

    Just because she is of pakistani origan, it does'nt really mean that she will repesent pakistan. She lives in france and will be going through NASA, not SUPARCO. But yes she is of pakistani orgian, but if we were to judge by orgins, then the indians, brizilans, europeans, canadaians, and japs have already gone to space. :)

    I don't mind where she is from. It is supersuper news. I wish her a nice trip. And it is good for women and for Pakistan. Those who start pointing finger at USA-Pakistan cooperation should understand that the begging and blaiming attitude should stop. It is great news that she can use US transport system...

    China, Pakistan to launch 3 satellites: Cooperation may also cover cyber-security

    BEIJING, Aug 30: China will work with Pakistan to launch three earth resource satellites over the next five years. Officials on Wednesday said that relevant institutions of the two counties had already started groundwork to launch the satellites within the stipulated period.

    According to the sources, Pakistan-China bilateral cooperation in the space industry could span a broad spectrum of topics, including climate science, clean energy technologies, clean water technologies, cyber-security, basic space, atmospheric and earth sciences and marine sciences, the sources added.

    The two countries have been playing an active role at the regional level as well, strengthening cooperation in the space industry. Pakistan, China and seven other countries signed a treaty for the establishment of Asia-Pacific Space Cooperation Organisation (APSCO) in 2005, and it would take effect upon ratification by five members.

    China&#8217;s legislature ratified the treaty in June, said Jin Zhuanglong, deputy director of the Commission of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense. &#8220;We are looking forward to expand the country&#8217;s share of the international market for satellite launches and other space services,&#8221; he added.

    Mr Jin told an international conference on the space industry that China had already signed 16 pacts with 13 governments and organisations and established space industry cooperation with more than 40 countries and international organisations.

    Specifically, he said, China would deepen cooperation with Russia, the Ukraine and other European countries as well as South American countries such as Argentina, Chile and Peru.

    In Asia, China is actively engaged in the setting up APSCO, which would be based in Beijing. Eight countries &#8212; China, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Iran, Mongolia, Peru and Thailand &#8212; signed the document last October. Turkey also signed the convention June this year, making it the ninth member of the organisation.

    The APSCO will be formally established after China receives approvals from at least five participating countries&#8217; parliaments. Chinese Vice-Premier Huang Ju said in a statement that China will work closely with related countries to contribute to the peaceful use of outer space.

    The formation of the APSCO will be beneficial to further exchanges and cooperation in space technology and its application and promoting economic and social development, and common prosperity, in the region, he added.&#8212;APP

    Pakistan is cooperating with China and having a joint development of these satellites. Of course the development & service cost will be fifty-fifty.
