eldavojohn writes “Congress and the president haven’t been exactly kind to NASA recently as far as funding goes but NASA chief Charles Bolden is ruffling some feathers with his planned trip to Beijing to investigate cooperative human space flight as well as potential Chinese involvement with the International Space Station. Such news has caused Congressman Frank Wolf to warn Bolden that o such planning or coordination has been approved by the Congress … In fact, several recent NASA authorization bills have explicitly sought to place strict limitations on coordination with China.’ Wolf is an outspoken critic of China in space and further warned Bolden in a letter that ‘It should go without saying that NASA has no business cooperating with the Chinese regime on human spaceflight. China is taking an increasingly aggressive posture globally, and their interests rarely intersect with ours.’”
