The Chinese Space program has recently been a favorite amongst sci-fi writers. The new thinking is that the communist system more easily allows for expensive projects like this one to be carried out, whereas the US space program is constantly facing budgetary  and political constraints. I just finished the second book in the "Maxis Novel Series"  it is common theme in the books from the characters to the back story. http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/The-Maxis-Novel-Series/348267511870244

The Chinese probably have a lot more volunteers, too!
