Spoken like a true Merycan... Dude your an idiot if you think the chinese are not gonna best you in 10 years max...
nobody trust americans anymore and youve become fat, lazy and stupid in just a couple of decades... Man your screwed!!
I bet the Chinese don't have a man on the moon in 10 years which would be OVER 50 years behind the US.
Funny how the fat and lazy whooped the world in the last Olympics and landed on Mars all on the same year too
How many Gold Medals did America get and How Many Gold Medals did China get?
You want the answer? USA, 36 Gold Medals, China, 51 Gold Medals.
But then again, that has nothing to do with going and mining the Moon, China will and America won't as long as we have Obama and his band of Thugs
using our Tax Dollars to Push his Loser Health Care Scam!
President Obama's 2011 budget request for NASA cut the agency's Constellation program completely, effectively canceling a five-year, $9
billion effort to build new Orion spacecraft and Ares rockets.
The new space vehicles were slated to replace NASA's three aging space shuttles (due to retire this year) and launch astronauts into orbit
and on to the moon.
Nasa Grieves over Cancellation
Thanks to obama and I would assume the cost to build his ACA website and his free phones and other freebies for Votes,,, America won't be going into
Space with out the Help of the Russians, India or China as long as obama and his Chicago Thugs and their policies are in place to keep Americans on
their knees with their hands.

What is this? Revisionist history? Is this the US Political Madness forum? No. it's Space Exploration....
Need I remind YOU:
So, we'd likely already have found other Earths WITH LIFE ON THEM
not killed this program, the Shuttle as well (yep, it was
Bush's administration who retired the Shuttle in favor of "Constellation") and a ton of other space science programs.
Take your Tea Party hat off and realize for one moment that none of what you cite has to do with Obama.
Instead it has to do with the steady drum beat that a party which has a vocal anti-science wing suspicious of "intellectuals" and "big government
programs" (so long as they aren't defense/black budget related) has been beating relentlessly since the early 1990s.
Most in space science say Bush was the worst president ever for that reason. He did nothing to reign in that wing. Instead he rolled out the welcome
mat for them and that party is more anti-science today than ever.
You know that space telescope Kepler that's been finding all of the planets? Well it too was set to get the ax by Bush's admin but it survived due to
some cost cutting, and Obama signed the on to the budget which allowed NASA to extend the mission so that it could complete its goal of determining
the percentage of sunlike stars that have a planet like Earth. Which we now know is around 22% +/- 8%)
Unfortunately, that may be all we know for the next 5-10 years because the missions that would have told us more WERE CANCELLED BY BUSH.
Constellation needed to be cancelled as it was too expensive after the de-regulated Wall Street ate itself in 2008.
Orion lives on though and has an actual flight scheduled for next year.
