    China just doesn't care. The Kerbal Space program has a better record.
    Hell we haven't launched anything (until just a few weeks ago with spacex/flacon9, 8-31-20, requiring a "dog-leg" maneuver) into a polar orbit from Cape Canaveral since the 60's due to an international incident involving a first stage allegedly landing on and killing a cow in Cuba. Polar orbits were exclusive to Vandenberg AFB. SpaceX's capabilities and a fire near Vandenberg in '16 made the push for getting the capability to do polar orbit launches from the cape available again.

    Nothing poisonous or cancerous in that cloud of Hydrazine and Dinitrogen tetroxide, or at the crash site, let's crawl all over it!
