What a sloppy story. Its not a Chinese experiment, its a Canadian and European Space Agency one, flown before, first launch attempt in 2002 on a Russian satellite.

It's Gizmodo. They had some decent space/tech writers (Tyler Rogoway), but they all left the sinking ship. Now they're all about clickbait headlines and hype. Oh, and if SpaceX is delivering a comsat to orbit they'll be sure to cover it.

Quote
China has commissioned a group of scientists to study the feasibility of building a manned radar station on the moon, but many experts on the mainland have questioned the potentially massive cost of the project and the usefulness of building such a base.

The government project was launched earlier this year and received kick-start funding of 16 million yuan (HK$18.7 million) from the National Natural Science Foundation of China, according to its website.

I suspect a translation error--not "radar station" but "radio astronomy station."

An article on pre-Shenzhou studies and the Shenzhou project. Check it out:

You gotta love this illustration. Here you go.

The TSTO HTHL project was revived in 2016 as project "Teng Yun" with a possible flight date in 2030.

Hi there,

There are some hints, in industry-related litterature, that the recently created "BEIJING LINJIN SPACE AIRCRAFT SYSTEM ENGINEERING INSTITUTE", which is involved in the development of aerospace aircraft, as its name implies, is also studying aircraft for space-tourism. This institute teams up with CALT on various projects.

Hasn't that already been reported? I saw an article online a few weeks ago that even had illustrations of the winged vehicle. Quick search turned up this:
