According to SKY NEWS we are on the verge of another space race.
Well at least it's not another ARMS race or cold war lol.

My question is, Is it really financially viable to goto the moon for these resources? Or (in true conspiricy mode) do they want to go for some thing else ?

ATK Thiokol is preparing to begin work on a more powerful variant of the space shuttle solid-rocket motor it has long produced as part of a streamlined NASA exploration plan that would land astronauts on the Moon in early 2017, a year earlier than previously envisioned.

NASA Eyeing Earlier Lunar Landing

Gee, I wonder why NASA wants to land on the moon a year earlier...

China is planning to send a manned mission to the moon as early as 2017, according to reports, to investigate the amount of helium-3 in the lunar soil. China first put humans in space in 2003, and has recently completed a second, longer, manned stint in orbit.
