    Pffft...we did it 6 times, and delivered 3 buggies up there and we did it with computers that had the processing power and memory of a desk calculator.

    And no, it wasn't because we absconded with German rocket Scientist after WW2

    Most of the seemingly overwhelming problems of doing that in the 60s were overcome by American scientist.

    Go ahead China, I guess in 40 years you'll land a buggy on mars.

    Look at how many are in this thread.
    Well, the entirety of indo-China's is apparently not capable of pronouncing the " Z" sound.

    If I were China, I'd have a press release, and announce that the conspiracy folks were right all along, as there was no evidence of a moon landing, or a flag, were found.

    Sure, but you know what China has a ton of that we don't have so much of anymore? Momentum. We can't even create a decent train system because it's immediately sucked into the culture war. China wants a train? Bam. Done. The more we rest on our laurels and celebrate our past accomplishments, the sooner the rest of the world is going to just pass us by. You could almost say that it will leave us in the dustbin of history.

    They've got the air quality to prove it.

    They're already hitting the ceiling of their capacity. Slowing growth, pollution and population problems. If they don't start to turn some of it around the way the US did in the 70's with an EPA they'll suffer for it.

    Oh, on that front they're suffering plenty already.

    Almost all rapidly growing civilizations crashed at one point or another due to environmental overload.

    I don't think environmental impact occurred much before the industrial revolution though I did read where the Egyptians literally ruined much of their own environment with the sheer amount of wood burned for kilning the bricks/blocks to build the Pyramids. Don't know if that's true or not.
