    Our grandkids will be buying Chinese astronaut action figures for Christmas in a few years.

    Thanks Trump!
    I noticed that my post about the oil went unreplied. Also there's the claim that it's a rich source of helium-3.

    I was in China 15 years ago and then 5 years ago, the changes in infrastructure was amazing. When China decides to do something they go all in, no doubt barring anything unforeseen happening they will indeed set up a base on the moon.

    More blue dildos. He needs to upgrade them to big blue dragon dildos.

    Red Team is against 'State Owned Enterprises'.
    Blue Team would call building a Base on the Moon 'White Imperialism'. (Pointing at Magellan, Cook, or that Columbus guy)

    But ... that would be 'Communism', Guno. So we can't do that.

    More like White Capitalism, but that won't be for years until the market for Low Earth Orbit Space Tourism is saturated....although they might start buying slots on the Moon from the Chinese.

    'Central Planning'. I believe the Issue is Central Planning. Central Planning is like when the Government built a Canal in Panama. It was an 'America First' idea that most supported back then.

    Looks like a good way to save money to spend on a Moon mission.
