china has become the third country to develop an independent space program to put its "taikonauts" in space (the others being the US and russia). you can watch a video showing the first chinese space walk, which is interesting. something i noticed in the video is that the chinese space mission control center seemed a little... tight, didnt it?

here's the russian mission control center:
and here's the chinese one they show in the video!?
is it just me? they seem rather tighly squeezed into those rows! or is this not the real control center?
