    Everyone in China is celebrating right now. This is a huge accomplishment for them. They went from a backward rural wasteland in the 70's to a thriving world economic leader, with 10% per year growth. Even when China does something right, ignorant Americans will find a reason to badmouth them about it.
    Unfortunately, they are still a brutal, oppressive, communist dictatorship. Specializing in human rights violations. Oh, we don't have to look to hard to badmouth these jerks.

    I don't hate China. I rove China.






    For the record, I am in no way racist. Not even close. I do have asian friends who play on this as well (a huge percentage of my graduating class was of asian decent), 99% have a great sense of humor about it. They call me round eye. It's all in good fun.

    It is what has happened since that is the problem.

    By problem I mean they haven't contributed much to the world other than cheap plastic items.

    Current. China's global economic contribution is tremendous. And who invented the plastic you refer to?

    The moon isn't in a Geo-Synchronous Orbit either, so your'e talking about bouncing a wireless beam of energy around and then down to a reciever that then stores that energy.

    Its a waste of time.

    Solar has already been exposed as a scam for the most part.
    WHAT!!!! Somebody actually said solar powered electric is a scam. What's up? Is all your retirement money in oil stock. I mean there can't be any other reason someone would post such a statement, well I mean I know there is but..........

    Except that it was dropped like a hot potato. If the US walked on the moon 44 years ago with less computer power than you have in your cell phone, then we should have colonies living there by now. Lets see where China goes with this before we start laughing. Perhaps we're the ones that will be laughed at in time!

    First images from the Jade Rabbit have been posted on the Internet.

    Mornin' Grip. What I also find interesting is that the Chinese are putting up a GPS type satellite and they are encasing ours......While extending their reach away.

    Myself, I think we should get something built on the moon before anyone else does. Some sort of Lunar base. Eventually we will lose the space station. Plus the Chinese want to put their own Space Lab in orbit.

    The Chinese aren't looking with any narrow vision.....nor should we.
