Didn't the lads camping on the moon tell ya about their zero gravity trip

Full of Chinese manners I see

What's the feeling like when the engines start the lift off before you clear the tower?

What will you be thinking when you are about to commence re-entry and going home?

How would you inspire the next generation to follow in your footstep into space?

What advice would you give young kids who want to become Taikonauts?

What is zero gravity like?

At LEO, Taikonauts do not experience zero-gravity.

Actually, gravity at LEO is not much less than on earth.

The Taikonauts are free-falling, giving the impression of zero-gravity.

Beyond LEO, the Lagrange point where the earth's gravity is equal to the moon's gravity allows the Taikonauts to be "suspended"  in space as if there were no gravity, in fact there is an equal force pulling at the Taikonauts from both bodies.
Since the existence of gravitational waves has been proven, we can conclude that there is no zero-gravity in our solar system.

I would like to see China position a space lab at the Lagrange Point between Earth and Moon for obvious purposes. You know why.

One scientific experiment I would like to see is whether we can manufacture Helium-3 by using the sun's energy.

China needs to give priority to the LM5 project, the next generation of rocket that can heave a 25 metric ton payload to LEO.
