Where is the cold war when you need it.
Yeah there goes the moon. I wonder how the Americans will feel when they have a China and or INdia and or Korean flag on the moon. When you look up you see your nemessis being there and you are on the earth looking up and they are looking DOWN on you.
When the russians lauched Spounik (sp?) Americans were all afraid and they fought like crazy to be the first on the moon. Now the moon will be used by other contries that might not have the same values as you americans. They will get the best real-a-state to mine. When Fusion reactors come along and you need that special Isotope that is so abundant on the moon you will wonder why you are not on the moon and you will remember this day when once again Americans are short sighted. Thinking that a puny war on earth is more important than space exploration. Of course you will just have to buy your electrical power from China.
Poor americans... once again cancelling a program because they are short-sighted.
When I read Space exploration is wasted money...just wonder what this world would be if Russians of the 1960 were the first to go on the moon. I doubt they would of stopped there. They probably would be the dominant country today.
Mark my words... if we humans want to survive we HAVE TO GO INTO SPACE... that is inavitable.
