China's Tianwen-1 Mars mission and its fast-growing space industry

SCMP, 10 Feb 2021
SCMP journalist Nadeem Shad speaks with freelance space journalist and China space industry expert Andrew Jones about the Tianwen-1 mission to Mars, and the audacious plan to deliver a vehicle to the Martian surface. Hear how the other missions being sent by NASA and the United Arab Emirates are not a new 'space race', and how it might just take FBI permission to allow an American spacecraft to communicate with a Chinese one.

Hear also why 2020 was one of the busiest years in China's history of space travel - and how it is embracing the commercial market to private companies keen to launch vehicles into space. #scmppodcasts
