ThoughtCo: The Future of Human Space Exploration
UK academics offer three reasons for China's moon probe:
Money, money, and the prospect of more money.
China's military budget includes money for space exploration; the public image created by space exploration is that China has a lot of money; and the 'untapped resources" on the moon are just more money waiting to be harvested. (See "BBC" below.)
Filthy lucre - the stuff that wars are always made of. Canada's Space Agency pretends to put that last, but we're not fooled:
So, it's no surprise that Canada is easing itself onboard with US preliminaries against China.
BBC: What's behind China's space programme expansion
Pence puffs out his chest and boasts that America's spending is bigger than China's:
Through the Pentagon, eh? That smelly edifice of death and debt - and budget fraud.
One is left to ponder whatever happened to the spiritual wonders and mysteries of our universe, where, though we strut and threaten one another with our imagined superiority, we are smaller than microbes in comparison to the vast reaches of space.
Fortunately, and unlike the western so-called powers:
Still, it went where no country had yet dared to go:
Sky: The Chinese Space Agency has gone where the Americans, Russians and Europeans have yet to go ...
So much for the legitimacy of America's mean-spirited attitude.
So much also for the theory that aliens inhabit the dark side of the moon. Or China would have backed off like everybody else, right? Wrong, according to certain believers and, reportedly, the Chinese have themselves suggested as much:
UFOholic (2016): Ever wondered why no one has set foot on the Moon for decades?
Salla is a pioneer in Exopolitics, a prodigious producer of books, and has his own website.
Sadly, this strongly suggests that "aliens" are not as alien as we imagine, but are equally crass participants in the military/industrial complex. Bummer. I hoped they'd be a cut above humanity.
Now I don't know whether to congratulate the Chinese or to just hold my breath as the West finds more reasons - besides the Huawei incident - to get yet another lucrative (for some) war going.
