Gary, thanks for sharing that, that is pretty exciting, and why not, someone had to do it eventually

Why am I registering off the paranoia scale? Must be something I ate, probably some dodgy chinese takeaway.

Now who will remember maybe 20 years ago I told of helping out for my Son and ran an open house inspection...and I met a Chinese chap who told me such..and I posted it here and folk thought I was mad..well they always do... But as I said to my Son I have a way of getting folk to tell me secrets...good on them ..India should be next..

I will believe it when I see it. China's accomplishment to date do not indicate the will achieve this milestone by the 2030's. This is merely China's propaganda tool in overdrive.

Remember it took the US just under 10 years to land a man on the Moon and it took three successive stages (Mercury, Gemini and Apollo) to achieve this. That was just to land a man on the Moon. China can expect the same time frame.

China is also presently committed to building up its Military and expanding so this will consume their resources (Human, Material and Financial) and to add this monumental ambition to the mix something will have to give.

China may well land a man on the Moon by the 2030's but I doubt they will have a full functional base on the Moon by then.

I reckon if anyone can terraform the moon it is China. Look at all the stuff they're already pumping in the atmosphere down here.

I didn't see one of these on their prototype design list. Maybe because it is fictional and no one has designed or built one so they couldn't steal the design

China is obviously making its way for leadership in space.
NASA is making itís bald and precise plans as well.
https://www.primetimes.in/technology...zNAxCjcnBszQi9

It should have a positive cooperation/competition output to spur the leaders for keeping the pace.
Case by case for extraterrestrial exploration, earth surveillance and communications networks, and overall space exploration field.

Today engineering is mature, tested with numerous designs and flights. So that we can plan realistic and unprecedented missions, including sending numerous facilities in short timelines without unnecessary too much of reinsurance and redundancy.
