    How many times must a man look up
    Before he can see the sky
    How many ears must one man have
    Before he can hear people cry
    How many deaths will it take
    'Till he knows that too many people have died
    The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind

    Weird logic in naming the spaceshuttle, it's the 2nd ship, yet they call it Shenzhou 4...maybe the 2 others blew up in an attempt to launch

    It seems to me that 'VI' means 6, not 4.

    There WERE Shenzhou I, II, III, IV and V before the Shenzhou VI, and ALL VERY SUCCESSFUL.

    To let you know more:

    Shenzhou 1: Nov 19, 1999, unmanned test flight;
    Shenzhou 2: Jan 09, 2001, carrying live test animals;
    Shenzhou 3: Mar 25, 2002, carrying a test dummy;
    Shenzhou 4: Dec 29, 2002, performed several science experiments (fullly suitable for manned flight);
    Shenzhou 5: Oct 15, 2003, carrying 1 man and staying in orbit for 21 hours;
    *Shenzhou 6: Oct 12, 2005, carrying 2 men and staying in orbit for 119 hours;

    And in the near future:

    Shenzhou 7: maybe in 2007, carrying 3 men and spacewalking;
    Shenzhou 8: coming soon, docking in orbit;
    Shenzhou 9: coming soon, maybe space station;
    ...
