NASA chief Bill Nelson has warned against China’s space program.
Today, Saturday, Nelson said: “We should be very concerned that China will land on the moon, and say: ‘This is ours now and you will stay out… China’s space program is a military space program’.”
Nelson said that unlike the US “Artemis” program, the Chinese do not want to share the results of their research and joint use of the moon. “There is a new race into space – this time with China,” he said.
China is sending its own astronauts to the moon. China has landed on the moon several times using research robots, and has also succeeded in bringing rocks from the moon to Earth.
According to official media reports in China, it is scheduled to establish a permanent station on the moon in the 1930s, as a later step. According to the data, the research station can be set up and operated jointly with Russia.
