How about a better video & English translation siegecrossbow? All I saw was a commercial and a video about what looks like some kind of production plant.

For those unable to see the video, the news is basically talks about the flight of China's space plane project. Something similar to the X-37B.

I don't know if there are English versions of this video around but the second part of the video, after the commercial break, is the relevant video. Sorry about leaving that information out earlier.

Oh okay. Thanks for the info. Was a little irritated by the ad. I just close the window when the ad started. :)

Well, from the screenshot, it does look a lot like the US space shuttle so I guess it is to serve that purpose. I am sure China has the ambition to have an unmanned space project. So far, no pics to show the launch. Would have loved to see the thing in flight. :)
