Pics here.<br><br>I hope this time they have more in mind than just getting there. That was the problem with the first Moon landings. The whole thing was just an extended publicity stunt, really, to show how much better capitalism is than communism. Once that's been demonstrated, there's nothing left to do, and so much for lunar exploration, settlement, and development. From the pictures, it seems that they're not contemplating the moon as a staging ground for voyages to Mars. Why go to the Moon, then? Fear that China will settle the Moon? That doesn't seem to me a productive reason to go back. If the Moon isn't settled, then the target should be Mars, and not just for the sake of getting there, either.<br><br>Back in 1969, when we landed on the Moon for the first time, I would have bet that by this point in history we'd have an active Moon colony which would be the staging place for a Mars trip and colonization. I'm glad I didn't put money on it <br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.
