Outer space comes to Expo

CHINA'S Shenzhou and Chang'e space projects will be highlighted in the Space Pavilion at the Expo Shanghai.

Construction began today on the corporate pavilion which is being built by the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, the China Aerospace Science & Industry Corporation and the China Electronics Technology Group Corporation.

The pavilion will look like a huge cube suspended in mid-air. The surface will look like outer space.

The design will make it look as though the structure is unsupported in places, said Wu Zhuo, deputy director of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.

The pavilion will show how aerospace technologies change people's daily lives. It will offer a preview of people's "environmentally friendly, safe and intelligent" future life. The spirit of the Chinese astronauts who are exploring space will be a centerpiece in the pavilion.

Twelve state-owned corporations will build six corporate pavilions at the Expo.

All the 15 corporate pavilions at the Expo 2010 have begun construction and the organizer is waiting on confirmation for the last pavilion.
