I'd really love to see the first person to walk on Mars be a black, gay, athiest woman so we can see all the neo-cons explain how those things need to stop her being a hero in the Neil Armstrong mould. Of course there's a pretty decent chance the first person to walk on Mars will be Chinese.
I know we're supposed to get all excited about walking on Mars but whether it's a he or a she, a gay or a straight, a black or a white etc etc I can't quite work up much enthusiasm somehow! However I do agree with your point that there is a good chance that person will be Chinese...but what the hell, someone's got to do it!
