I don’t think of it as losing a Moon so much as gaining a Mars.

So, did you see this yet?

That would be China landing a rover on the surface of the moon.

The junk we left up there in the 70s now has company, and that’s super-cool. Even if we’re not progressing in space travel as quickly as I’d like (we meaning humans in general — I’m not placing the blame squarely on NASA here), at least other countries are now showing interest in the area beyond our tiny world.

Now, it doesn’t matter to me who sends up rockets, rovers, probes, and manned space flights. I don’t care if China does it, or Russia, or Canada, or America. I’m just tickled pink that there are humans still interested in seeing what’s out there. America doesn’t own the moon, or Mars. Nations don’t have any claim to other planets.

But we can all explore. We can all learn. That’s not restricted to governments or politics.

That’s what humanity is all about.

So what about you, folks? What’s the next thing you’d like to see in space exploration?

    Dude, I’d love to see affordable flights to a much larger International Space Station, that not only serves guests but also doubles as a ship construction yard

      I’d love to see asteroid mining. Creates jobs, can completely overturn the world’s economy. Win-win.
