    I hope there is something out there that is smarter than me.
    In Western Media, the China Moon landing is presented as a current event.

    So many of the YouTube Videos about this try to make something sinister out of it.

    There have been at least 10 Lunar orbiting Satellites, with one of them doing a 3D map, with 100 meter resolution of 92% of the Moon.

    There have been some wild Videos on YouTube that the Moon is hollow and perhaps an Alien Base?

    One thing seems relatively certain and that is there has been unexplained "ringing" of the moon's surface that may be attributable to caverns there. This was reported by the Astronauts and was attributed to the crashing of some piece of NASA hardware.

    Previously to me it seemed like America's abandonment of Lunar exploration has been owing to the loss of support after President Kennedy died, the Vietnam war, all the other wars that America did in the Middle East.

    I wonder if China will find anything significant there, and if they will share it?

    If China finds something significant, why would they share? That's the style of the West.

    I doubt they would share if it was of some advantage for them to keep it quite. If it is something new they find, but it has little value other than information, I am sure they would for the prestige of finding it.

    Now in response to something you put in your post I just cannot resist responding to. Even-thought it is off topic I cannot resist so I apologize in advance.

    NASA hasn't let this out yet, but Et's spaceship that came and got him had problems and crashed on the moon. He is now trying to 'Phone Home' again.

    I think the whole thing is pretty interesting.

    It's no secret that the dark side of the moon has been associated with so many conspiracy theories among the Paranormal crowd.

    Science wise it'll be amazing.

    George Noory wise it'll be immensely entertaining.

    This is mostly a technical feat: keeping in communication with the probe even though it is on the far (not dark) side of the moon.

    I'm not sure why the ringing of the moon is considered surprising as it is generally accepted by science that sound doesn't travel through vacuum... where is the vibration going to go anyways? What am I missing? Doesn't the Earth ring as well? :confused:

    It will be interesting, if they share, and that is doubtful, what they do find out about the dark side of the moon. Could be, as I suspected, it is just like the light side of the moon, only darker, and colder

    We already know there are more craters on the far side. There is no good reason for the far side to be colder since it *does* get sunlight as often as the near side (when the moon appears to be a new moon to us, the far side is completely lit up). The phrase 'dark side of the moon' is a misnomer.

    Well, I knew the picture wasn't serious.

    But there are a LOT of people who don't realize the far side of the moon isn't always dark. Maybe Pink Floyd is responsible for that..... :)

    Regarding scientific info, the Chinese will want to
    share it because it means success & prestige.
    To not would be to lose face.
