One small step for mankind, one giant leap for China?

China Space Walk

The story of Chinese astronauts conducting their first ever space walk has been all over the news today.

China catapulted itself into the upper reaches of space science yesterday, becoming only the third nation after the former Soviet Union and the United States to successfully conduct a spacewalk.

Sorry but I fail to see all the excitement, what exactly is the big deal?

It appears that astronaut Zhai is only the 298th person in the world to have conducted a space walk. There were no scientific or technological breakthroughs being made.

Seems to fall a little short of those black holes being made in Switzerland.
