我看神舟

很老實說,我與神舟系列飛船頗有緣,在商台《光明頂》評論神舟五號,陶傑那句查實講得很中的「無錢開飯,有錢叫雞」,結果被《大公報》那些土共點名抨擊,俞琤找小弟照肺(回想起來,由這件事開始,根本不應指望俞琤會捍衛言論自由)。

我在《新加坡聯合早報》評論神舟六號,提倡建立「中國太空總署」,當然有些明眼人會明白我的用心,因為由解放軍總裝備部與美國、俄國在太空事業上合作,根本是很膠一件事,但有些憤青明顯係不同意,因為他們一早把太空事業與軍事混為一談了n世。

在毒奶事件期間,適逢神舟七號升空,據聞還會首次太空漫步。很坦白說,在毒奶事件和汶川大地震在前,中國應該取消神舟七號升空至適當時候。

太空探索為了誰?除了為了科學理想,當然是為了子孫後代。問題在,汶川地震,加上遍及全球的毒奶案,乜中國還有未來?一個連子孫安危都不重視的國家,還談什麼太空探索?儘管神舟七號發射是很早安排的,但中國人眼中看來,只是感覺有人意圖轉移視線。

與其發太空春秋白日夢,倒不如想如何搞好中國的醫療和教育,新一代普遍受過好教育,日後再追回太空計劃進展有何難?

  1. 就算有中國太空總署,又唔俾解放軍玩埋一份。中共都一定會派人去打躉,就好似d高等院校有一個黨委書記,耐唔耐搞下思想教育,乜乜研討會,講黨八股…….正所謂乜都要講政治。

  2. “但偏偏話自己係developING country…”

    This is to gather moral authority in front of Western postmodern leftists like Noam Chomsky or Susan Sontag. The relativists in the West always demand the West to be of exceedingly high moral standards, and then when it comes to China, they say “Give China some slacks. They had been bullied by our ancestors for far too long and still trying to crawl out of poverty. They should take the world for the same amount of time as we ruled the world…”

    If China admits it being a developed strong nation, that shibboleth will be gone.

    Good point. It reminded me of a joke during the Soviet Union’s existence:

    “An American journalist visits a Soviet family in Moscow under the auspice of Tass. A girl responded to the bell ring and tells the reporter, ‘I’m sorry that neither my father nor mother is at home.’

    ‘When is your Dad back?’

    ‘He will be home in 9 hours 12 minutes 28 seconds.’

    ‘How do you know it is this precise?’

    ‘He is a cosmonaut.’

    ‘How about your Mom?’

    ‘Oh, I don’t know.’

    ‘Why don’t you know? What is she doing for a living?’

    ‘She is lining up in front of the grocery.'”

    I guess you can modify this joke to fit in today’s China:

    “An American journalist visits a Chinese family in Beijing. A girl responded to the bell ring and tells the reporter, ‘I’m sorry that neither my father nor mother is at home.’

    ‘When is your Dad back?’

    ‘He will be home in 9 hours 12 minutes 28 seconds.’

    ‘How do you know it is this precise?’

    ‘He is a taikonaut.’

    ‘How about your Mom?’

    ‘Oh, I don’t know.’

    ‘Why don’t you know? What is she doing for a living?’

    ‘She is off at the supermarket grabbing the imported milk that we are now drinking, and then has to attend to our cousin, who has admitted to the hospital after drinking the kidney stone milk! After that, she has to see the municipal government to change the registration of the family from Shijiajong to Beijing.’

    ‘Your uncle?’

    ‘Oh, yes, they are penniless after the government took their home without compensation for building a new housing complex.'”

    問題係神舟系列飛船,同埋長征火箭,控制權都在中國人民解放軍總裝備部,唔係國家航天局。
