A new report by the Institute for Science and International Security has found that while most of the world’s nations are now using more than 30 percent of the Earth’s surface as space, that figure has dropped to a low of just over 5 percent.
That’s down from an average of nearly 7 percent in 2000.
The report, which looks at the size and capabilities of nations in various sectors, also finds that China is the biggest user of space resources.
The world’s biggest economy has become the largest spacefaring nation since the late 1970s.
The U.S. has been in space for nearly 40 years, and its manned space station has been active since 1981.
But while it is the top-spending nation, its overall share of the space budget has dropped in recent years.
China, which now accounts for about 15 percent of global space spending, is the only country that is not on the list of countries using a lot of space.
In 2010, China spent $14.8 billion on space, which includes about 5 percent of its national space budget.
But it spent only $2.9 billion in 2020, the lowest total since 1996.
The IISS report also found that space resources have grown steadily in the past decade, despite a slowing economy.
While the report found that the share of total spending on space increased from 3 percent in 2001 to 5 percent in 2015, the cost of space activities has gone down steadily.
According to the report, there were more than 8.5 billion satellites in orbit in 2015.
The total cost of those satellites totaled $5.6 trillion, which is up from just $3.6 billion in 2001.
China’s space activity has risen dramatically in the years since 2020.
It accounted for roughly 9 percent of all space activity in 2021.
The average annual increase in space activity between 2020 and 2025 was almost 50 percent, according to the IISS.
The country spent $2 billion on satellite launch in 2020 and has spent nearly $300 billion on launches in 2021, according the report.
China also launched its own manned spacecraft in the first half of 2021, a new development that could be a sign of a growing capability.
A recent Chinese satellite launch, however, appears to have been an anomaly, according a U.N. report that analyzed satellite launch data from NASA.
The satellite’s payload, known as “China’s new space ship,” was launched from an old launch pad at Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in southwest China on Sept. 5.
The mission was designated “Aeronomy and Navigation for China,” according to an Aug. 30 report by NASA, which cited Chinese news reports.
The launch site was not identified, and it was not immediately clear how the spacecraft was launched.
China is one of the three nations that launched its first satellites into orbit.
China launched its Chang’e 3 spacecraft in November 2016 and followed up in March 2017 with the first-ever Chinese launch of an unmanned spacecraft.
A Chinese satellite was launched by its own launcher, a launch from a Russian rocket.
China has launched more than 70 spacecraft into orbit, and the government says it is on track to reach 100,000 by the end of 2020.
China will spend $100 billion on launch vehicle and satellite technology in 2021 and will spend at least $20 billion on commercial launch services, according an Aug 10 report by Bloomberg.
China began a long-term partnership with Lockheed Martin Corp. in 2020 to develop the first rocket-powered orbital spacecraft.
China plans to use two of the rockets to launch Chinese and Russian space exploration satellites to orbit.
The rockets will launch from China’s Jiuquansat-1 launch site in the northwestern province of Sichuan.
A third rocket, which will launch an orbiting laboratory, is slated to launch in 2022, the latest date available from Lockheed Martin.
The program is funded by the U.s.
National Science Foundation, according as the launch site for the rockets is near Sichu, according U. S. officials.
China was one of five nations that signed a 2015 agreement to develop a joint space program.
But that effort has been stalled because of a dispute over whether the country’s new leader, Xi Jinping, would be allowed to participate in the program, according and the IAS report.
The agreement was intended to bring together all five countries, but China has not signed it, according.
