    Very Good News – Looking forward to the Blast off in July. The US, Nato even the Russians will be absolutely shocked by the ingenious talents of China’s world renown scientist Pan Jianwei and disciples to overcome this very difficult R & D project. After successful deployment of the world first quantum communication satellite in space, the prestige of China’s science and technology discoveries would have have gone up a few notches.
