Blaine Curcio

China’s Long March Rocket Family, its Belt and Road Space Initiative and the “Elon Musk” Factor

Blaine Curcio, Founder, Orbital Gateway Consulting

China has been in the news a lot lately, mostly about trade tariffs and their expansion in the South China Sea. But in addition to the country's growing economic power and international influence, it has also made some very impressive strides in terms of its space program. With us today is Blaine Curcio, the founder of Orbital Gateway Consulting. He discusses China’s development of the Long March rocket family, the deployment of the first space station, the Chinese lunar exploration program and the Belt and Road Spatial Information Corridor, a significant space initiative that, among other things, plans to have a global GPS available by 2020. He explains the difference between the meritocratic nature of the U.S. space industry versus China’s incumbent advantage, as well as the “Elon Musk” factor in China’s space industry.
