At least as far as scientific investigations are concerned.  NASA just landed its fifth rover on MarsChina is going to land their first sometime in the coming months. Even the UAE has sent a probe to Mars. (Post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

A really nice article analyzing China’s space ambitions as well as the competition from other regional powers. If you read between the lines there are some real opportunities for the US to engage in cooperation in this arena with other non-Chinese space agencies. (Post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

Normally, I am rooting for all space exploration attempts.  However, I can’t say I am sad about this.

What is the Navy up to?

I know I’ve done a post on this previously, but the Navy has been filing some pretty crazy patents lately.  More documents are coming out and you have to wonder, is any of this real?  Is it just theoretical?  Is it a giant disinformation operation?

sell NASA to Elon Musk for a dollar?  It is because of things like this, and this. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger, who’d be as mad as I am at idiocy like this.)

You’d have to have a heart of stone….

Not to laugh at this.  It is richly deserved, thought you feel bad for the common citizen.

Chinese moon rocks

A Chinese probe is bringing back rocks from the far side of the moon.  It is a very impressive technical accomplishment.  The Chinese are serious about space.  Thank God Elon Musk is, because the rest of the US government seems oblivious.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is not our friend. They are not even our friendly rival. It is time we learn that. Exhibit #38,649.
