Will be watching with interest. Bet America is non too pleased about it. Wait until they put a man on the moon next....
why would America be "not too pleased " ? We don't own the moon it belongs to everyone.

Moon quakes? The moon is not tectonic plates floating on magma.

Not from what I've read here. Lots of people don't think NASA hides stuff. I know I'm not alone.

Are you serious? Why does NASA switch off the camera on the ISS if a ufo or something else passes by?
Why did the astranauts have a secure channel that the public had no access to when they went to the moon, what did they have to hide then?
They said the moon was colourless at first as well.
When those unfortunate astranauts burnt up on re entry, they knew it would happen yet didn't tell them so that they could at least have said goodbye to their loved ones.
I could go on and on but NASA is full of crap and is well known for it.

Did they?
Source please.
And dont just go and do a google search for something now. I'd rather hear about the story you had in mind when you typed those words.

Waits for the 'They never landed on the moon and its all done in a parking lot in beijing' threads



Better yet how long before this finds it's own thread....



As a UFO...

oh.
When you said "nasa told us...", I though you had something more official in mind that just a sentence taken from the middle of a conversation.

If anyone is interested to look at LROC quick map, coords of the landing site has been identified

Lat: ~44.1260, Lon: ~-19.5014.

Cool

If you look at snow on a sunny day, do you see subtle colour differnces? If you look at the snow when it is overcast does it still seem as colourless to you? The human eye is very subjective in addition. I am sure you have seen those optical illusions where to colours seem totally different, depending en their surrounds. If you look at a full moon through a decent telescope, do you see any colours in it? I am talking about a decent telescope, not a toy model which has lenses not corrected for chromatic abberation.

Most photos of the moon in the early days were all in black and white even though they could have used colour instead. Colour ones show up more detail than b&w ones

Truthfully, I'm not interested in having a discussion about the colour of the moon, only about China landing a craft there and this is what this post is all about anyway.

Then why did you bring the colour of the moon up?

For the record, Apollo astronauts took plenty of colour photographs of the moon from Apollo 8 onwards, and if you read the mission transcripts you'll see them refer to the moon having a variety of colours from grey to brown - usually depending on the lighting condition at the time. Apollo 17 also found orange soil.

Anyone who wants to know the moon's colour only needs to get a telescope.

As for stars, if they have an appropriate camera and appropriate lighting conditions, they will photograph stars, just like Apollo did with their low light and UV photography experiments.

Very much looking forward to the pictures from this.
