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

Going to Mars eventually is important as a milestone. It's political as much as scientific.

But it has to be done at the proper time. Just saying we're going to do it without the infrastructure in place to make it a practical ambition is counter-productive.
