Soon....
"China announces that the moon has always been part of China, as the moon Goddess Chang'e has lived there for 4000 years after she drank an elixer of immortality acquired from her husband the Legendary Archer who saved Earth. Unless invited for a visit, all other countries will be considered Trespassing if they set foot on the traditional Chinese territory now known as Yuèliàng."

China, which has stepped up the pace of its space program in the past decade, has made exploration of the moon a focus.

Meh, it's just a phase.

If China tries to claim the moon, maybe the government will adequately fund NASA
 
2022-07-05 2:12:11 PM  
Maybe if their shiat quit exploding on the launch pad...we might take this seriously.

More likely they'll put funding into "Space Force" to work on launching attacks upon the moon.

So yep, China absolutely plans on claiming the moon as soon as they make a landing there.

Best Korea is gonna have to up their rocket game.

The technology to put someone on the moon is ancient. They could certainly put a permanent base on the moon. All it takes is money.

I'm not going to be concerned until they start turning the Moon reefs into artificial islands.

China will claim the moon simply by virtue of being the only nation diligent enough to take exploration and colonization of the moon seriously.

Kinda Surprised that when Space Force was made its own branch that NASA was not made part of it.

They'll set up a base first. Then claim it is a sovereign territory of China.

Turns out there's an old map that shows the Moon being part of the China during the Qin Dynasty.

And when they realize it's just a big giant puff ball of dust that's completely incapable of supporting anything we can all have a big laugh.

Problem: There's already an American flag on the lunar surface. So America has dibs. USA! USA!

They can keep Uranus.

I've often said one of the best ways to get the USA to fund NASA seriously would be if China took the US Flag from the moon and put it in a museum in Beijing.

Problem, the ultraviolet radiation bleached out the colors of the flag.  The flags are all white now, like we surrendered the moon to China.

We already saw the fight on the moon on the last season of For All Mankind.

"OH so the great United States wants to crumble their empire by extending their military supply chain all the way around the world?!? Well we'll show them we can crumble our empire twice as fast by extending our military reach...TO THE MOON!!!"

Sun bleaching has most likely turned it into a Confederate battle  flag, or rather the one they had at the end.

I think that was the whole point of the interview, USAliens seem to respond to fear.

That might explain this:

"NASA lost contact with a satellite after it broke free of the Earth's orbit"

Do any of the US flags on the moon still show stars and stripes, or have they been bleached by unfiltred sunlight?

They can not even afford to bale out their housing meltdown.

So go for it, see how far you get

It worked for Russia in the 60s.
