Re: US retreat leaves China leading way in race to return to Moon

The Chinese space agency could land its first astronauts on the moon within a decade in a move that would mark the beginning of a new age of lunar exploration, experts said today.
Even if Constellation had gone forward, it's unlikely we would have gotten back to the moon within 10 years.

Maybe if Constellation had been funded to the necessary level from its inception (2004, was it?) that might not have been the case, but it wasn't.
