Hope they will discover all the alien bases ! (sarcasm might be implied here...)

I guess we'll know shortly if there are bases or not. If the lander makes it there without any mysterious "accidents" that cause it to blow up or crash, then I'm guessing no aliens (or other interested parties) were there to shoot it down.

Great job China picking up the thread where others left it. To bad NASA and ESA chose to leave the moon behind. Funding doesn't seem to be s big problem fof thd chinese at this point.

Partly true, it's good that the Chinese are taking part in lunar exploration, it's not true that the others haven't left off.

Untrue.

NASA has sent multiple probes to lunar orbit over the last few years, including the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, launched in 2007 and which continues to take the highest resolution images of the Moon ever obtained, the Gravity Recovery And Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) mission which measured differences in gravity and therefore explore beneath the lunar surface and the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) mission which explored the extremely tenuous lunar atmosphere. NASA also provided instruments for India's Chandrayaan-1 lunar orbiter

Further more, only a few weeks ago the Trump administration announced plans to return US astronauts to the Moon.

ESA, meanwhile, is a partner in the Russia's plans to restart their robotic exploration of the Moon. ESA also has plans to build a manned lunar base in co-operation with China.

Also untrue.

NASA's budget is larger than the of Russia's, China;s ESA's and Japan's combined.
