The Reds are on Mars! I wonder if we have a gun on Ingenuity’s helicopter? Might need it.

I believe the Chinese rover landed a fair distance away from Perserverance and the helo.  Although somewhat behind our accomplishments in space, the PRC's program is ambitious and if we don't get our act together, will catch up!  It would be nice if we could cooperate with them, but given the current attitude toward them and ITARS limitations, I don't foresee it anytime soon.

Stay well and safe, Pards!

Looking at where they were when we landed on the moon and where they are now it’s nothing short of miraculous. As far as cooperation, that’s not in their playbook. They’re all about domination.

How did they do this without a Department of Education?

Its easy to "appear" to be a technological giant when you are hands down the worlds best at industrial espionage.

They are truly miraculous at that. Better than the Russians.

It doesn’t help that out corporations are teaching so many of their people and they in turn steal technology and knowledge hand over fist.

Naw! That's why we have our Space Force.  Eventually will have to train Starship Troopers! :rolleyes:

I'm not sure how miraculous it is. It has been more than 50 years since we landed on the moon, lots of time for them to catch up.

Its not that they are all that good at industrial espionage - its all of the self serving traitors that keep selling their countrymen out to Red China for an easy buck.

Maybe between the Chiang-e5, Tiangong space station and now this Mars rover, Congress and NASA might quit d... er, messing around, cancel the SLS/Orion fiasco and give funding to SpaceX (and Blue Origin and Dyanetics, if they can show they can actually build something), and get our astronauts on the Moon before they have to compete with taikonauts for base space at Shackleton crater.  In 50 years we should have had human bases on the Moon and Mars already!
