Yeah that was like 36 years ago or somethen?
Past is all past, 30 years ago you landed (well, many people including scientists doubt if you really landed on moon ), does not mean you ARE able to land on moon now, see where is your space schuttle now? You never thought you will be dependent on Russians today to send your men to space right?

Seeing as how Chinese scientists think we weren't there... I'd say it's going to take alot longer then 30 years.

I believe we landed on the moon, but the images that were shown to the public were obviously edited (maybe even fake altogether *gasp*). That said China might to land a man on the moon only to discover a secret U.S. moon base.

I highly doubt there's a secret moon base.
I read a conspiracy report actually. Turns out they even got the side of the moon Apollo 11 landed on wrong. They said it was the light side of the moon when anyone with just even half a knowledge know they landed on the far side (one without sunlight.

Sometimes you have to wonder this:
If it was possible to land on moon in 1969, then why after 35 years, with such modern tech of today, no single try was done anymore to land on moon again?

Fool. Has there been a need to land another man? We've sent rovers in over seven moon missions to date.

Yeah FlyingFrog, that's just common sense. Common sense, man...

A robot can never replace a man.

1. 36 years past, landing on moon again should be WAY easier, but never landed a man again.
2. maybe landing rover is the only choice, since you cannot land a man there at all.

Well there hasn't been another mission to the moon because it's expensive, it's already been done and there's no point in going back just to "prove" Americans can.
America does have the technology to send people to the moon. They just don't do it.

The space thing is really too expensive.. even for the US. NASA is scaled down because of budget restraints.

For China to have the same level of the US in space program, is only a dream too far. China has to depend on Russia for astronaut training and other aspects of the space flight.

China cannot afford the money and does not have the technology for space arms race.
China sending a man to space in 2003... the US and Russia have already done that countless times in 1960s. If China wants to compete in space exploration, it has to catch up 40 years.

I thought we offered to help them out too but they turned us down.
