Exactly! This is not news. It wasn't much then, either, since it was the boards, not the technology that was placed in the satellite launcher. The rocket explosion supposedly gave the boards to the Chinese, but even if it did, it was still just the boards, not the technology. They may well have the technology by now, but they developed it on their own. We ought to stop thinking of the Chinese as capable of bamboo tech only. We did the same to the Japanese, even while they were developing commercial automobile and electronic technology that just about put American technology out of business.
