DFH Episode 5 – The Most Funky Space Projects in China

Our podcast is also available in an audio format on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other podcast platforms

Good day and welcome to episode 5 of the Dongfang Hour, the China Aerospace and Tech Podcast. Today we are discussing China’s funky space industry. Before going into our list of funky projects, we will have two definitions of “funky” in this episode:

  • Plain old funky. This refers to projects that are funky in every sense of the word–funky technologies, business models, etc. This includes space planes, solar harvesting, and electromagnetic rockets.
  • Funky in an “only in China” way. This refers to companies buying orbital slots as a way of moving money out of China, or online video giants that can justify buying their own EO satellite. 

Without further ado, the links to our list of funky projects:

  • Chongqing as future solar harvesting center of China

Thanks again for listening, and we look forward to seeing you next time!
