The Dongfang Hour new report mentioned in its latest newsletter a paper in "Space Policy" written by American academic and China hand Lincoln R. Hines, released on 15 January. It outlines China’s public opinion towards space, and how it impacts the space sector: "The article finds that China's public is largely supportive of investing in human spaceflight and deep space exploration. The survey also indicates that although respondents view the United States as a competitor and a threat, they favor cooperating with the United States in space exploration. Furthermore, the survey finds that China's public is supportive of international law governing outer space, as well as laws banning the use of space weapons."
