    I'm just wondering what he means by scam. Does he mean that solar panels don't convert the sun's light into electricity?

    Solar is wonderful, I am hoping to equip my house with it in a few years. Gotta get a new roof first...but I want to set up the foundations, and every few months, add in a few new panels. Where I live, 300+ days of blazing sunshine, it works here.

    I agree, it takes a special kind of asshole and China qualifies.

    Well, maybe we shouldn't stand by and let other assholes take the charge forward in space, as we seem content to do now. I don't know if you've noticed, but we're not exactly rushing to colonize other planets at the moment. The operating budget for NASA in 2013 was 3.5 billion dollars. Not shabby, but the military is getting 630 billion, so it's not hard to see where are priorities are.

    Mornin' Cardinal. Not to mention the Chinese aren't letting any doubt they were there. As they had the Rover take a pic of the ship and the Ship take a pic of the Rover.

    Do you think they got the rover to put up their Chinese Flag?

    Either way this is significant as China now gets to be a member of the Space Club......Wonder when the Europeans will get their act together and one of those countries attempt to do something in space.

    Looks like we will be contending with the both the Russians and Chinese.....as usual without any support from those Europeans, huh?

    Actually they've been doing it on my house for sixteen years, I'm pretty sure.

    I sincerely feel sorry for the people who got suckered into buying a whole home Solar rig.
