Around the same time as President George W Bush was unveiling the next steps in America's space exploration program, China announced its space plans.
The country's official newsagency says China aims to launch 10 satellites this year, along with a lunar probe in December.
The country will also try to land an unmanned vehicle on the Moon by 2010.
Within the next two years China will put another astronaut, possibly two, into space.
