Why not just add their 3 person capability to the INTERNATIONAL space station. I know they can have their own space station completely under their own control and manageable by just them, but the ISS already has a lot of things that they would not then have to worry about replication on their space station. Not to mention the massive international gesture the Chinese working with the rest of the world would have. it's a shame really. It would be nice to have a space station where different nations truely come together as one and look into space as a combined effort of mankind than of a particular nation of man kind.
