China plans to launch first space walk

China will effort its first space walk during the nation's third crewed flight next year. The mission will involve three astronauts and the spacewalk will be broadcast live. In 2003, China became only the third country to put a human in space using its own rocket, following in the footsteps of the former Soviet Union and the United States.

The nation announced last month that the new Long March 5 carrier rockets would be made in the northern port city of Tianjin, but launched from a centre being built on the tropical southern island of Hainan.

Considering nation's chart, Moon and Ascendant both are of Uttarashadha Nakshatara with Capricorn Sign. Lord of first house-Saturn is posited in eighth house in Leo. Transiting Saturn and Ketu are also passing from eighth house. China plans to launch its third manned rocket, Shenzhou VII, into space in October 2008. The decision was taken during Jupiter's transit from Scorpio. The (astronauts) will walk in space for the first time and each move will be broadcast live. Lord of third house- Jupiter is transiting over natal Jupiter and lord of fourth house-Mars is transiting from sixth house. It is under aspect of transiting Jupiter.

Ganesha sees that China would start building the rockets at the end of 2009. During the transit of Saturn from Virgo, it will produce a new generation of more powerful rockets to send heavyweight satellites and space stations into orbit. Nation may have to face some budgetary problems till the end of May 2008.

Ganesha wishes all the luck for China's mission of launching the space walk.

Ganesha's Grace,
