The papers published a picture of the China-made spacesuit aptly named "Feitian", weighing a whopping 120kg and takes 15 hours to put on. Unfortunately, the suit doesn't look very flattering from the pictures taken. The "cool" factor is somewhat missing IMHO.
Comparison with the first American astronauts from Project Mercury
USAF U-2 pilot - not exactly an astronaut but dressed like one to fly the Lockheed U-2 spy plane, nicknamed the "Dragon Lady". The U-2 is a single-seat, single-engine, high-altitude, reconnaissance aircraft with super long (103 feet) wings which gave it glider-like characteristics. It can carry a variety of sensors and cameras for its spy missions.
While the Chinese are there, I hope they take the time to find that American flag, because I don't think the Americans ever landed on the moon.
I hear you Kenny. I also want China to find the American flag, if it even exists.
