Silly spin by JT. We should celebrate all nations who push the boundaries of our scientific knowledge of the cosmos.

The moon program is part of a growing rivalry with the U.S

Nothing impressive.

Made with stolen technology.

Well done. Go science !

Any new knowledge is good to obtain, hoping China will share any discoveries.

That is exactly what the Big Three said about Japanese cars in the '70s.

Excellent job by the Chinese and for the betterment of all humanity.

@Wesley How can China stolen the technology that the NASA never owned? NASA planned to probe that part of the moon in 2026. I am highly aware the CIA will steal Chinese space technology to achieve that goal instead of delay and further delay !

Interesting to see which accounts here are pro-CCP, and which aren’t.

Japan during its re-development in the 70s wasn’t going around threatening other Nations at the same time, and still isn’t.

I also don’t need to wonder why so many Chinese like to live here in Japan rather than stay back home in their “obviously much better Country”.

Soft landing or hard landing? Amazing feat if they can carry the whole complicated thing off. Credit where credit is due.

Trying to get cooperation from humans is about as successful as the Tower of Babel was.

Hopefully, the Chinese mission will get a few pics of the alien base there too.

Correction. For the betterment of China. Or specifically, the CCP.

I am sure they will share any new information with the world.

After they squeeze every drop of any possible strategic value out of it.

Pray tell, why would China cooperate in any way with NASA when NASA blocks any cooperation with the Chinese Space Agency? Life is a two way street.

I was there. That turmed out to be BS.

Japan always licensed whatever they needed, and then improved them. Those Detroit big three teamed up with the Japanese car makers in thre 1980s. GM wth Toyota. Ford with Mazda. Chrysler with Mitsubishu Motors.

In contrast, much of what China has accomplshed is through outright industral theft, hacking of information and total disregard for trademarks and IP rights. Not to mebtion that unlike Japan, China is an adversary country.

China will beat America in the new space race or space war !

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

For the betterment of China. Or specifically, the CCP.

Oh indeed, the victory for PRC in space is good for Chinese, we are definitely soley aiming at that goal in our stragetic planning. Why should we benefiting an adversary who is using all kind of dirty methods to contain us ?

@deanza: why would China cooperate in any way with NASA when NASA blocks any cooperation with the Chinese Space Agency?

For some selfish people like former senator Frank Wolf, they just like playing selfish games to declare US's interest is out there. China's space technology advance is betterment for the true meaning of space exploration. But for Wolf, the space is: Mine, mine, mine!

Your blind ideology is showing again. In talking about the automobile industry I was there in China in the 1980s when China invited VW and Jeep to set up factories in China. Through these and other industrial partnerships (hello GM!) Chinese engineers and designers learned while working alongside workers from around the world developing the skill set that we now see in cars like BYD.

In contrast, much of what China has accomplshed is through outright industral theft

Science (and medicine) transcends borders and politics. The scramble to find a vaccine and cure for Covid is one example.

Excellent, well done China..

Find rocks, or a rock group? Don't you know that there's no 'dark side of the Moon, really. Matter of fact, all of the Moon is dark!

Lets hope they didnt go all that way to get more rocks to throw at poor Taiwan. But with China these days it is hard to be sure.

A worthy feat landing on the far side of the moon, and returning rocks will be a feat also. Dont go wasting the effort.
