The growth of one-person households could have numerous consequences for society, ran

In the US, one major reason for staying single is that marriage isn’t view
ed as it once was, and the age at which one gets married is also rising, the Census report shows.
More than half of the participants in a nationally representative sample (55 percent) sai
d that getting married was not an important criterion for becoming an adult, according to the Census report. The sa
me percentage also said that having a child was not an important milestone of adulthood.
“Decades ago, people often waited (or tried to wait) until marrying before having kids, h
aving sex, or buying a home,” Bella DePaulo, a social scientist at the University of California, Santa Barbara, t
old China Daily in an email. “Now those possibilities are readily available outside of marriage.”
leaves that we’ve seen, is that while some people did some bad things, that there were some people who clearly
interfered with the last election, that there was no collu
sion,” Spicer said. “And so they’ve started to move on and go on, what appears to be at least, a potential fishing expedition.”
Spicer did not say whether he had received his letter from the Judiciary Commi
ttee yet, but he said he had learned he was on the committee’s list through news reports.
The committee requested documents from multiple Trump allies including family members, campaign officials and longtim
e employees of the Trump Organization. Many of the people the committee is seeking documents from hav

nger the prerogative of the US and Russia. Apart from the US, Russia and China, India too has worked out an ambitious plan to put astronauts in space by 2022.
Constantly improving manufacturing and new material technologies have remarkably reduced the cost of space launches. The pr
ivate US company Space X has successfully launched recoverable rockets, and its launch cost per kilogram payload has fallen below $2,000, one-ten
th that of a space shuttle launch. And for China and India, the cost of one rocket launch is less than $5,000 per kg.
Another major change helping space exploration is the advancement in 3D printing technology, which now allows astr
onauts to produce parts and components in the International Space Station and thus reduces the number of sup
ply vehicle launches. 3D printing will play a big role in the construction of a permanent space station on the moon.
These technological advancements have propelled a new wave of space fever ac
ross the world. While US President Donald Trump has reactivated the space ex
ploration program that aims to land humans on Mars by 2033, private space companies such as Space X and Blue Ori
gin have used advanced technologies to their full advantage to move ahead in the space race.
For China, building a permanent space station and a rocket launch platform on the moon will
be critical to advanced space exploration. Actually, China is moving closer to fulfilling that objective.
