People need to stop thinking of China as they used to be. They will probably be on the moon before we get there again.

until they put someone on the moon, why should we? people say they're doing this or doing that, but the proof is in the pudding. return all chinanauts home safely after a moon mission, then i think you are right, and we should take them more seriously.

they've proved they are slightly better at launching rockets and stealing IP than we thought they were. but where would they be without it?




so if people in the space community look down on china's abilities, this is probably why. maybe not. but we'll see if they can return chinanauts back from the moon.

If it wasn't for SpaceX, we would still be hoping for Artemus 1 and SLS. Oh, wait...it doesn't actually work...

China is leaps beyond Nasa right now.
