Report: China will launch manned space flight on Oct. 15: "China will launch its first human being into space on Oct. 15 in a 90-minute flight that will orbit the Earth once, a major Chinese Web site reported, quoting a top government rocketry official. ...

"The flight would take place one day after the closing of the Chinese Communist Party's plenum, a major political meeting. That schedule — coupled with the National Day holiday last week — illustrates China's long-held desire to hold up its space program as a patriotic endeavor."
