China moon

Michael Griffin, head of NASA, in a September speech quoted by The Associated Press:
I personally believe that China will be back on the moon before we are. I think when that happens, Americans will not like it. But they will just have to not like it.
Cue Billy Bragg's song "The Space Race Is Over":
It may look like some empty gesture
To go all that way just to come back
But don't offer me a place out in cyberspace
Cos where in the hell's that at?
