quote: As a non-asian.. is that good or should I be worried?<\quote>Are only non-asians American(assuming you are Am"ur"ican)? (asian)that's a very broad term, not talking about "politically correct" it's beyond that.So no, you have nothing to worry about being a non-asian just because three countries China, India, and Japan in Asia are pushing a space program, and you have nothing to fear or worry(or show hatred) about when you see a fellow American of Chinese, Indian, or Japanese decent.You might have to be paranoid of non-asians over in Europe though, who plan on space expeditions though(Russia's not Europe, it's mostly of what's called Northern "Asia", so you can be paranoid of those Asians too), ;) haha
