    WASHINGTON -- China appears ready to conduct a second unpiloted test flight
    early this month of its experimental Shenzhou spacecraft, a step that may
    lead to that country's own space station.
    
    The test flight of a Shenzhou-2 could take place as early as January 5,
    according to SPACE.com sources.
