    I just caught the FOX NEWS talking head saying that the Chinese are launching a female Astronaut to rendez vu with their own "Space Station", since they were not allowed to use the international (Russian) space station.

    that story ended .... the talking head then said ....
    our next story is ...

    "Is America past it's Prime"


    Gee let's all retire to little study groups and see if we can work this riddle out amongst ourselves.

    The Chinese own the Moon.

    Um, NO, they don't.

    They haven't even been there yet and wont anytime soon.

    A bit of a stretch worse than a DirecTV commercial.

    Soon all will try this as a means of threatening the US with ICBM's.

    They want to show capability. Better science has nothing to do with it.

    Screw them.

    Translation: China is sending a female nuclear scientist to its orbiting missile silo.

    We (the US) are just in a bit of a slump right now. The US will be back in front in 5-10 years.

    The privateers (SpaceX, Blue Origin, etc) will be doing launches for much less than what the bloated NASA costs are.

    Remember NASA's Bolden said In 2010 his "formost mission" was to better Muslim relations. WTF. Why is this NASA's concern?

    As long as she don't screw with the ones we have up there, it's all good.
