questions that one could try to find the answers to
If anyone out there wants to play amateur CIA analyst. Here is your chance. Much of the information on this page is probably wrong. Here are some questions that one could try to find the answers to:
I've added some snippets from CNSA's website. -Wikibob | Talk 20:55, 13 October 2005 (UTC)
What is the relationship between CNSA, COSTIND, or the State Science and Technology Commission or the China Academy of Sciences. It's not clear to me if CNSA is directly under the State Council or if it is under COSTIND. That makes a big difference because if it is under COSTIND, it has a much higher military flavor than SSTC or under the State Council?
CNSA states: "The Ninth NPC assigned CNSA as an internal structure of the Commission of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (COSTIND)."
What is the relationship between the civilian space program and the People's Liberation Army? My current theory is that the PRC is trying to actively model the Chinese defense industry on the American one. So the PLA has no direct control or supervision over the civilian space program, but because the PLA and the CNSA both contract to CALT, and CASTC, that civilian and military experience get exchanged back and forth. My current theory is that one can see the Chinese space program as moving from a Soviet style system to an American one.
I'll pass on all the others, but would be interested to see some answers. -Wikibob | Talk 20:55, 13 October 2005 (UTC)
something should be said about the logo. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 10:12, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
I wonder what their inspiration was for this? --Son (talk) 19:32, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
I know im a geek, but jezz it looks allot like the starfleet symbols they use on star trek! MattyC3350 (talk) 06:00, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
Meaning of logo is added. Is a new page for the logo needed? --Playcod (talk) 20:18, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
Shouldn't this say something about the similarity to the Starfleet logo? I realize there is a real explanation, but it really DOES look like the same one. I've heard alot of people talk about it, and I think it should at least be mentioned. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 16:52, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Oppose CNSA is not a well-known abbreviation in the English language.- choster (talk) 16:31, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
Oppose Unlike NASA, the China National Space Administration is not predominately known as CNSA.--Labattblueboy (talk) 17:50, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
Oppose A simple redirect from CNSA to this page would work, seeing as its not very well known by its short form.--NavyBlue84 14:12, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
Oppose We have enough pages with acronyms as titles as it is. While the acronym may be familiar to those in the field, the vast majority of readers won't have a clue what CNSA is. Skinsmoke (talk) 16:33, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
Oppose - Note also that NASA is sometimes said aloud as a word ("Nasa") rather than as a string of letters ('n', 'a', 's', 'a'). Surely that's not true for CNSA? (sdsds - talk) 19:40, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
