One giant leap...Backwards?

With China successfully landing their rover, The Jade Rabbit on the Moon, the race to be the leaders of outer space has definitely taken a turn. The Chinese government after decades of studying the American and Russian space programs, made China only the third country to successfully land on the Moon, on their first attempt as well. The significance of all of this is pretty substantial, considering that our government has all but closed the doors to NASA. With manned shuttle missions completely cancelled, we have to rely on the information that is being gathered by our rover that is currently exploring Mars. Which by the way is delivering some really astounding footage. But with the Chinese space program in full gear and steaming forward, the plan is to put astronauts on the Moon by 2025 and place a Chinese flag there.

That would be a great publicity moment for China surely, but the really meaningful lesson from all of this as College of New York Physics Professor Michio Kaku explained, all of our information is in outer space. Satellites that transmit all of our cable and dish programs, our cell phone information, our bank records and everything that we do on the internet is transmitted by satellites. Now this could all just be circumstantial, but leave us not forget that there was pretty strong evidence that someone in China allegedly hacked into some very sensitive information in the U.S. a few months ago, (After releasing Eric Snowden). Maybe its just being a little over suspicious, but this just does not seem like the proper time to turn our backs and walk away from the next frontier.
