The probable steps!

Step one
China developed the Middle Class, consumer society.
Building a 300 million large Middle Class or "High Income Workers"!
The Demand is there!

Step two
Build a space theme hotel station,
Develop "space station" manufacturing on Moon - to reduce cost of "launching from earth"
Develop the suborbital hypersonic craft!

Step three
Do remote search for rare materials, uranium etc.
Build nearly fully automated mining, and "uranium enrichment" machinery....
Build "Kinetic launchers" to send enrich uranium - 10% enriched, instead of the low content ore we find on earth!

Step four
Increase nuclear power plant in China.
From 100 giga by 2030, to probably 500 giga.....
using the "extra" electricity to produce Synthetic fuel, a WHOLD GAMUT of new technologies!

Step five
China becomes numero uno of the world!

hmmmmm

We have to spend the US$1 trillion anyway....
Why overspend more than needed anyway!!!!
China has less energy resource per capita than British Club, Russian Federation, USA, France and Arabs anyway!

cheerios!

After the 40 to 60 SSN's, and 3 battle groups

.....there is still a big budget left!

We must do something productive!

The game now MOVES FAST FORWARD to the year 2100, when natural gas, crude oil and uranium trade is severely controlled by the BIG POWERS.

If Russia, Australia, Canada, South Africa, Niger has th ...


Do you really know what is an asteroid.

You are gonna mine an asteroid traveling at the near speed of light ????

There is an aesteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter!

Heck!

It's like a "smash up planet", so we look for the BITS that have rich URANIUM resources!
If's it's 1000 ppm, we mine it, CONCENTRATE IT, and use KINETIC GUNS China developed in the Shanghai maglev, andsend it hurtling down to earth!

ha ha ha

The new WILD WEST, space asteroid, moon colonization!

Admiral Zheng He failed the Chinese Nation badly, when he only "brag" about China and it's riches!

While the Kingdoms in Europe, send Desparadoes, Adventurers on wild trips to uncharted oceans.
The Queen of Spain, the King of Portugal spend "equivalent of billions" to fund such people on wild adventures!
While Zheng He brought back stories, the Europeans brought back WEALTH to Europe!

The colonization of moon, the mining of the asteroids now is vital!
Japan, Russia has already send REMOTE CONTROLLED spacecraft, using VIRTUAL TECHNOLOGY to study the NEW FRONTIER.

China cannot afford to "remain petty" and get "stuck in useless politics" - especially the "balance of power" recreated now! The budget for the military-cnsa is big, the needs to spend on military is limited due to "assymetric strategem" of China. So, it's time to SPEED UP technological research......

...so that when incomes level rises in China, and the NEW MIDDLE KINGDOM, it can launch the new industries!

IMAGINE, if China can gain 500 giga of electric capacity (or double the global nuclear electric capacity now), if we can gain a foothold on uranium mining in space! Plus a SPACE TOURISM industry for citizens to enjoy!

cheerios!

Ah ! An asteroid belt with inconsistent random moving rocks with irregular shapes some even larger than 1000 km

And in shadow you have a temp of -400 celsius

And in sunshine you have +350 celsius

And now GD don't tell me that you are day dreaming

Its a non navigable zone in space
