Hosts of the Dongfang Hour (, a podcast focusing on the Chinese aerospace industry, Blain Curcio and Jean Deville join me in another ChinaTalk space episode to talk about launches in China and public enthusiasm for space projects.

We discuss: the Belt and Road in space; the differences between the Starlink and Guowang networks; Europe’s dilemma on selling to the U.S. and China; China’s ambitious space projects in the 2020s; why the vibe in the Chinese private space industry is “smiley and optimistic.”
