China's Flying Dream
Any individual in China will be deeply impressed by the scene portrayed in the picture, which is immensely exciting and spectacular. This vivid drawing symbolizes the progress of our science and technology, and especially the achievements of our space exploration. We conquered the space, and the conquest represents a visible proof of our nation's strength and prosperity.
The advances of our space technology will be of great benefit to us in the long run. Thanks to communications satellites, we can see television pictures transmitted live half-way across the globe. We can communicate with our friends and business partners who are far away from us. Without exploring the space, we could never figure out its mysteries or broaden our horizons far beyond the boundaries of the planet Earth. Besides, what distinguishes us from animals is that we know we need to explore, indeed, the space technology is not only the search for knowledge but also a mirror of the strength and prestige of our nation. Every Chinese will become proud of the spectacle depicted in the picture.
China is growing stronger and stronger, and it would never lag behind in the progress of science and technology. We are looking forward to new achievements coming up all the time, as is shown in the spectacle.
