China Launches Tiangong 1 Space Lab To Strains Of America The Beautiful

MAYBE China just want to thank the US for letting it make everything? Warren Murray explains:

To mark the launch [of the Tiangong-1 space lab], the Chinese space agency and China Central Television (CCTV) released a proud animation, set to rousing orchestral strains, of the “Heavenly Palace” thrusting skyward, lofting above the Earth and docking with a Shenzhou crew capsule. The only problem being that the backing music in question is America the Beautiful – more or less an unofficial national anthem of the United States. The Guardian spotted the blunder after picking up the video from the Reuters news agency while covering the launch.
