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

C'mon guys don't lose hope. The Soviets launched the first satellite (sputnik), launched the first living mammal into orbit (Laika) and then the first human into space (Gagarin). They had the first space walk (Leonov) and moon exploration (luna 2) and the first space station (salyut 1). We caught up with them in the end and surpassed them.

The US still remains the first and only nation to have humans land on the moon. Twelve Americans have walked on the moon. other countries have zero people walking on the moon. Even if the PRC sends taikonauts to the moon, it will take them several manned moon missions to catch up with the USA.
