Thanks to American mismanagement of their economy and constant Senate and Congress infighting America lost their opportunity for moon's domination. China will have a base on the moon under five years thanks to the all the people that leaked all the top secret government documents.
From a security point of view the free world is f**ked.
It doesn't matter where it was made. I remember one astronaut being asked what he thinks about as they get ready for lift-off. I can't remember which one it was but he said, " Well, I look at all the wiring, electronics and fancy technology and equipment and think to myself, 'Gee, the contract to build this went to the lowest builder.'" ROTFLWell since Chinese have lower per unit labour and environmental costs than us it only makes sense to let them run the factories.
WOuld you venture forth on a spaceship with MADE IN CHINA on it? Remember you can't pull over to the curb when it breaks down.
