I apologize if this question is a tad off-topic:

Does anyone out there besides me think that perhaps the Chinese are
gearing up their manned launch capability with an eye toward "acquiring"
the now "abandoned" Mir Space Station, complete with all kinds of
scientific goodies...for the cost of one manned launch, it seems like a
bargain to me.  Doe thay have enough time?

Are there any international space "piracy" laws that govern the
"ownership" of orbiting craft? Perhaps similar to sea salvage rules...

Curious in Asheville,
