Very creepy!
 
I watched the embedded video and the Chinese launched their Tiangong-1 space lab this week into orbit, the music that went along with it is "America The Beautiful".

I for one find it odd and creepy. Could we be in for a surprise gift in the future?

No, no surprises in the future...not from the satellite anyways...

It was meant to send a message, which made the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. China is just now sort of rubbing it in that, while we decline at break-neck speeds, they are on the incline, almost as fast.

Its also commonly referred to as mocking...

Very true. Through I do have, on good authority, that they are making a big to-do about the US backing out of the space shuttle program to build their own reputation as we are simply backing off to help fund the rebuilding of a sharper program with greater technology.
