"A German moon-landing is possible during the course of the next decade, around 2015," Peter Hintze, state secretary for economy and technology, told ZDF television.

Such a mission would cost around 1.5 billion euros (2.2 billion dollars) over five years, he said, adding that the scientific benefits would justify the expense, even as Germany suffers its worst recession in six decades.

It's an unmanned mission, but another country will join the, thus far, very exclusive club of countries to have sent satellites and/or people to the moon.

Seems as though a good number of countries are picking up the pace in off-world research now. Maybe this will help to spur NASA onto their own goals... we can only hope...

Props Germany

Do you think they will visit their Nazi base they built just after the Second World War to provide them with the news that they lost 4-2 to England in the 66' World Cup Final, and Far-Right Politics is back in vogue and it could be time for them to make a comback?

Experience for the unmanned and manned space missions for the ESA.

Every country is going to have to start perfecting this technology in order for private industry to take it up and turn Space into a commercial venture.

Every government knows that as soon as we can start making money from mining resources in space, the world will hit an unimaginable economic boom as well as finally starting to colonize space. This is the next time 1960's American style Capitalism will be feasible. Debts will be cleared and taxes dropped, humanity will evolve faster than ever.

Thats my 2 cents on why Germany want to put a robot on the moon.
