Long March rocket fueled for Tiangong-1 space module launch

The United States can't even put a man or woman in space these days. How embarrassing!

JIUQUAN, Gansu, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- A spokesperson with China's manned space program said Wednesday that fuel has been injected into the Long March-2FT1 carrier rocket in preparation for launching the Tiangong-1 space module Thursday evening as planned.

The Long March-2FT1 is the latest modified model of the Long March-2 rocket series and features a more powerful thrust force, said spokeswoman Wu Ping at a press conference at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China.
