China could consider the “acquisition” of the moon as part of its military space program. NASA Administrator, former Senator Bill Nelson has warned that China’s space exploration could turn into a lunar colony.
China on Monday rejected NASA’s warning as “irresponsible defamation” that China could “Occupy” Moon said as part of a military program that it has always called for building a community of nations in space.
A response echoed by NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, published in the German newspaper Bild on Saturday. In this interview, the former senator sees China’s victory as a threat to the probe. “We have to be very concerned about China’s landing on the moon and then saying, ‘This is for us and you have to stay out now.’
“This is not the first time that the United States has ignored key figures from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and talked irresponsibly about China.According to Reuters, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said.
China has never hidden the purpose of launching a space conquest, quite the opposite. Chinese President Xi Jinping is the biggest promoter of the program, which he calls the “Space Dream.”
A dream that is becoming a reality. On April 29, the central module was successfully launched Tianhe “heavenly harmony, From the base of Wenchang, located in the island province of Hainan, to the future Chinese space station. The construction of the future Chinese space station Tiangong is a decisive step “Palace of Heaven”. A base that will consist of three parts, including the central module Tianhe, Will be the management and control center. Two more 14.4 m long modules, Ventian “Heavenly Quest” And Mentian “Heavenly Dream”Will be attached Tianhe.
China has been building an independent space program on the border of international cooperation since 1990. It must be said that China was excluded from the ISS because the United States forbade NASA to cooperate with Beijing. A factor that forced him to create his own station.
China plans to launch unmanned missions to the moon’s south pole by 2025.
We now better understand why Space race It also causes geopolitical tensions. China, which has no desire to be left out of space conquest, will work hard to catch up like this. Perhaps by going too far in his ambitions.
From there, China wants to take a single (giant) step until the Chinese flag is hoisted on the moon. But as far as the ownership of our satellites? U.S. progress may also seem inconsistent.
Still, Bill Nelson nailed it, saying that China, along with Russia, wanted to build a lunar base on the moon., Of course the first step for the country before claiming the planet. The former United States senator made the assumption in an interview with a German newspaper.Pictures “Released on Saturday.
A remarkable release that NASA has confirmed is that it has been conducting an extraterrestrial investigation since a mysterious “rocket body” collided with the moon’s surface earlier this year. The space agency reportedly discovered the wreckage in March.

“The hole actually consists of two holes, an eastern hole (18 m diameter, about 19.5 m) placed on a west hole (16 m diameter, about 17.5 m).“, Reported the US space agency.
According to NASA, “Double hole“The fall of a spacecraft formed on the ground meant it was not about a medium-sized rocket. NASA also collected data that confirmed an object actually crashed to the moon on March 4, but the source is still almost unknown. Four months later.
