"A Chinese Long March 2F rocket launches on the Shenzhou 9 mission, China's first manned space docking flight and first flight of a female astronaut, on June 16, 2012 from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center."
The day China blasts into space, the USAF secret robotic space craft, the X37B, lands at Vandenberg AFB after spending 469 days in space. The China Daily newspaper wrote that the X-37B program raised concerns about an arms race in space, a sentiment that was echoed by China's Xinhua News Agency.
