Which country does the moon belong to? In our opinion, the moon should belong to all mankind, and the countries that can land on the moon have the right to develop it together, but the United States has warned us: the moon is American, you stay away.
The person who said this statement is not some passerby, but the famous NASA, the director of NASA Bill Nelson.
He said in an interview with German media that the moon is American and that the United States needs to be concerned about the likelihood of a subsequent Chinese moon landing.
Why would he say that?
Because in NASA's view, the Chinese are very ambitious, the moon landing is a military program, we engage in space stations to destroy other people's satellites, and say that China is developing so fast that it is actually stealing technology from the United States.
I am very angry after reading the report, and I will refute NASA Administrator Bill Nelson's comments a little bit below. I hope you will join me to see the end and like and retweet to support.
China's Aerospace Industry Sanctioned by the U.S.
One of Bill Nelson's famous statements was that the reason Chinese spaceflight is so advanced is because it stole technology from the United States.
In fact, this statement was made more than two decades ago, when China-US relations turned warm, space exchanges between the two sides were more frequent, and China's space industry made rapid progress.
However, the United States began to panic after seeing China's great development, because they calculated that in just a dozen years, China could surpass the United States technology and become the world's first space power.
It is important to know that space technology is a strategic level technology, which can be used as communication, mapping, agriculture, and disaster mitigation. Woo can launch intercontinental missiles, form air and space protection networks, and take out other countries' satellites to completely paralyze another country's sea-land-air combat system.
So, in May 1999, the U.S. bombed the Chinese Embassy in Yugoslavia, killing three journalists, to warn China, followed by the release of a Cox Report.
The 872-page report fabricates China's crimes of "stealing" from the United States and concludes that China's space development is so fast because it steals American technology. In order to prevent this theft by China. The United States must "break off" with China in the field of space.
This is the first official U.S. report of sanctions against Chinese spaceflight.
Later, the United States began to sanction the Chinese aerospace industry. The U.S. Congress passed the sanctions bill.
1, prohibit the export of U.S. satellites and related parts to China.
2, Any U.S.-made aerospace parts are prohibited for use in Chinese rockets.
Immediately after this sanction, there was a setback in the Chinese space industry. After all, the United States was really advanced at the time.
But the Chinese were not to be defeated, and we began to ply our way to "independence", developing even faster than we could have imagined in the best of circumstances.
In 2003, Shenzhou V carried Yang Liwei to space.
In 2011, the Chinese space station, Tiangong-1 laboratory, was launched.
In 2018, Chang'e 4 went to the moon for lunar sampling and is still working on the lunar surface. (This is technology that the US does not have)
In 2021, China's space station is completed and three astronauts begin their long-term stay in outer space to conduct scientific experiments. China has its own space station.
We did this without "stealing" U.S. technology. Because the subsequent U.S. Wolfe Clause completely cut off any connection between China and the U.S. in the space business.
And what about the United States? About to lose the International Space Station, after all countries in the world, only China has a space station.
I have a space station, you don't. Now you Americans can't say "plagiarism" of your technology, right?
China's moon landing touches U.S. "interests"?
Actually get the space station okay. After all, the orbit is still relatively large, but if China landed on the moon, it touched the "dead center" of the United States.
Why? Because China is going with Russia to build the space station.
In 2021, China and Russia signed a memorandum on "Cooperation in the construction of the International Space Station on the Moon". The two countries decided to spend 15 years to establish a base on the Moon.
If China and Russia set up bases on the Moon and start using its resources. Then China's development space will break through to the Earth-Moon system, which will have a huge impact on the U.S. allies.
After all, we have done what Americans could only dream of but could not do.
So the U.S. panicked. and NASA panicked.
As the director of NASA, he shouted, pulling out China as a "threat object", in fact, in the end, or to ask Congress for funding. You know that in the U.S.-Soviet space arms race, NASA's funding is more than rich.
But with the gradual decline of U.S. national power, the U.S. space budget is not enough. After all, with the inflation crisis and economic recession, the U.S. government is having a hard time giving budgets and grants for restructuring.
After all, the government itself still has a $30 trillion debt on the line, with a lot of interest each year, which has money left over for you to spend on NASA?
And, the U.S. program in terms of moon landings is way behind China. China has planned for a moon landing in 2035 and has developed 3 phases that are being executed in an orderly manner. But NASA has not come up with a similar timeline to China for landing on the moon and building a base.
After all, the United States does not even have a space station, want to build a base on the moon, there is a space station can save a lot of costs. So the U.S.'s top priority is not to make any lunar bases, first get a space station of their own out of it!
Panicked U.S. Space
The U.S. Congress, which passed the Wolf Act, wouldn't have expected it. The U.S. space technology, which was so capable at the beginning, is already in danger of being overtaken by China.
In fact, it is not difficult to understand that the lack of aerospace links with China is actually a closed-door move. And closed country, not open, are eventually will be behind.
One is independent + with European space links, the other is closed and unwilling to engage with China. Coupled with the continuous efforts of Chinese astronauts. Chinese spaceflight overtaking the United States, in fact, is a certainty.
So the panicked NASA director, unwilling to allow himself to be overtaken by China, asked the U.S. Congress to approve $26 billion in an attempt to help NASA reestablish its hegemony in the space sector.
At the same time, he also expressed hope that China and the United States to take the initiative to establish contact, China did not take the initiative to propose communication with the United States, and accused China of not having a sense of great power, unwilling to take the initiative to share space data.
Jokes, the U.S. and China space industry was cut off by the American initiative in the first place, but now blame us?
In my opinion, Chinese astronauts are very impressive, after all, they have achieved this by their own efforts under the sanctions of the United States and the various "cut-off" sanction bills.
And the development of the space industry is a good indication that even if we leave the suppression of the United States, if we give us a dozen years, twenty years. We can also surpass the United States, or even better than the United States do!
The Chinese chip business has suffered repeated setbacks since 2018, isn't this just like the bombing of the Chinese embassy in 1999 and the sanctions against the Chinese space industry?
So in ten or twenty years, will China's chip business develop as much as the aerospace industry, causing Americans to "panic" and make China responsible for not taking the initiative to share chip technology with the United States?
Hopefully in 20 years I'll be able to write another article on the Yankee joke with you all!
