China To Launch Moon Probe In 2007 - Person On the Moon Within 15 Years!

China has announced that it will launch a lunar probe later this year with a plan to land a person on the surface of the Moon within 15 years.

The probe will provide 3D images of the Moon, survey the lunar landscape, study lunar microwaves and estimate the thickness of the Moon's soil. China became the third nation to place a human in space in October 2003.

The Moon exploration programme includes a planned lunar fly-by in 2007, a "soft landing" in 2012, return of lunar samples by 2017, and thereafter landing an astronaut on the Moon.

I for one welcome my new Chinese lunar overlords.

Saskboy, I do to. I think it is unfortunate that no one has been back to the moon since the 1970's. I would feel a lot better if I knew that mankind was working to establish our species off this planet - I would rather see the money going to the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts spent on other projects, like feeding people, or health care or science - anything but people killing each other./\
