China has declared plans to land a man on the moon and to build a space station by as early as 2020.

Telegraph said:

A white paper published on Thursday laid out the country's five-year plan for the development on new satellites, spacecraft and a space station and provided the official confirmation of China's lunar ambitions.

i'd prefer the Americans being the leaders in space exploration, and preferred it was NASA going back to the moon. but times change, but seeing a Chinaman landing - walking on the moon wont have the same affect/appeal to me as seeing Americans walking on the moon again. i dont know why but thats my take.

China is the evil empire! They'll probably open a factory on the moon so they can have a way to manufacture their cheap crap in low gravity. They'll ship Tibetian buddhists up there and force them to slave away in a lunar sweat shop.

Sounds a bit like racist comments here. What would the line. Of conversation be if the headline read "African nation plans manned space mission to Moon."
Maybe some would say "oh well, they can't break anything up. there!" Personally, I'm all for any human expedition to      neighbouring planets and moons!! Pushing manned space        exploration is setting us up for stellar and interstellar    space exploration! At the very least, I hope mankind will get over ethnic differences and realise we are all belonging  to the same race, the human race. Good luck China and whoever does the next step in space flight!

What happened to ``one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind``  Oh wait, Neil was suppose to say one giant leap for the western world.   Any and all missions beyond Earth is a leap for us all.  People who think the Chinese will keep things hush, must think NASA was and has been always completely open with the general public. I don`t think so.

The problem is that once the chinese make it to the moon...you will have the cravings to go back and do it again an hour later...

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

Actually if the Chinese did start building a station on the moon, it would set in motion a new space race - 'The quest to own the moon'.  And it would also speed up mans advances in space colonisation - something I'm not all that chuffed about to be honset. We have to sort out our act here first.
