I'm fascinated by the Tiangong-Shenzhou 30-day mission, which is a sensible stepping stone to a Mir-class station but ALSO strikes me as a viable prototype human deep-space expeditionary craft -- say, lunar orbit or even SEL2 and back in a month. Systems need upgrading and a LEO-departure stage [launched by an unmanned LM-5] would be needed, but it's got all the basic modules, now in flight, that are mostly just on the drawing boards in other countries.

China and the United States have a complicated relationship. Considering that, how should America feel about China's space ambitions? That was the subject of a recent House of Representatives space subcommittee hearing. http://www.planetary.org/blogs/jason-davis/2016/20161014-america-china-space-ambitions.html
