We have a new Mars rover on line at $2.5E9 says NASA's Ed Weiler and they have a $22E6 reserve to achieve a timely and safe launch. We just are not sure when.The Aircraft carrier that the Chinese have is really a renovated Russian vessel, the Varyag that the Chinese bought from it's former home in the Ukraine where it was rusting away after the collapse of the former Soviet Union in the early 80s. General Chen Bingde, head of the Peoples liberation Army, said, everyone else has a carrier, we want one too!!.
