China to launch moon rover mission to scout out locations for a lunar base that will one day be used for a mission to Mars
Live launch coverage will be here.
Another story about it.
Well it’s about time someone bothered to do this.
40 years and we couldn’t even get a remote-controlled rover there? It doesn’t even have to be a true robot. The signal lag is so small that you can control it from Earth directly in almost real time.
But they won’t beat us at Muslim outreach.
And your Black Friday purchases are funding our future subjugation from space. Great job, America!
Good thing they are building a moon base. They’ll just want to go back an hour later.
Japan makes ready to put a belt of solar panels on the lunar surface...
US gives out free condoms door to door......nice.
As life in the U.S. continues to decline, we’ll all be watching Communist Chinese lunar rovers beam back video on the news...
As those in the U.S. government sit around conference tables figuring out how to gain even more control over us and loot what’s left of our money/savings.
China is going to land a man on the moon in most of our lifetimes.
If the U.S. doesn’t stiffen its spine and learn to respect intelligence over grifting there is going to be chaos in the Pacific.
Looks like we will be dancing to the light of a Communist Moon.
Ruh roh . . . .
Am I the only one who’s read “The Moon is a Harsh Mistress”?
remember the day when there would be a betting pool on whether the Chinese mission
1- gets off the ground
2- reaches space
3- manages to hit the moon
Hold it. Didn’t America land a man on the moon first? And didn’t he unfurl and post a flag there? Well, then the moon is US territory. They can’t build a lunar base without US permission.
Both China and Russia have made it clear that they intend to use such bases for military purposes. What good did it do us to get to the moon first - we are just letting them take it over.
Will the GOP raise the NASA issue, will they promise to restart Space Exploration or will they fail even to point out that we can’t even launch a freakin website under REGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS.....REGRESSIVE AS IN REGRESSING FROM FAMILY TO HOMOSEXUALITY, FROM LEADING TO FOLLOWING ...FROM BEING THE FIRST TO WALK ON THE MOON TO REGRESSING TO SPECTATOR STATUE.!!!!!
We really should beat them to this. I know there are more terrestrial matters on all our minds, but, come on.
Meanwhile back in the USA, we are investing trillions in lazy fat welfare idiots.
