when china reaches the moon before america, will they replace the u.s. flag with the chinese flag at all the apollo sites?
china is positioned to land astronauts on the moon and set up a base before the u.s. has any chance of getting off the ground. it's obvious china will become the new leader in space exploration and the new rulers of the moon. the u.s. hasn't even launched astronauts into space for eight years and has fallen years behind china.
@anonymous: your incoherent rant makes you sound like an imbecile. the flat earthers don't believe space travel is even possible. they claim the moon landings were hoaxed, filmed in a hollywood studio.

Yes, they could- the US stupidly signed the Outer Space Treaty back in 1967.

China has gone to the "far side of the Moon" and India has just sent up a rocket totally robotic to gather water samples off the moons polar region. Basically a waste of time and money. EVEN IF THEY FIND DIAMONDS UP THERE it would not pay to bring them back.

Funny. The US government already sent people to the moon years ago.
It's just empty airless rock.
You could go live there nothing is stopping you ifyou want to 'save the moon' from the Chinese.

Since the Chinese are targeting the other side of the Moon, it is a meaningless question. Note that planting a flag does not provide ownership of the Moon. It is just a symbolic gesture to say you've been there.
Now, question why the US should go to the Moon. Research there can be done far cheaper and safer by using robotics. The Lagrangian Points make for better places for a platform for further space exploration. There are better places to put a military base. Face it. The current mania for the US to go to the Moon is more political than anything.

Who knows. Who cares. Let China waste their funding on repeating what has already been done. Manned spaceflight is obsolete now anyway.
nasa is still the leaders in space exploration. They are the only nation to have sent probes clean out of the solar system, and have launched far more missions than all other countries put together. And they were first to put men on the moon, back in the bygone days when it was necessary to do so. There can only be "me too" efforts now.

US flags are not there anymore, only the sticks are left. Radiation and micrometeorites dissolved the cloth over the last 4 decades and more. So no point in the Chinese doing anything like that.

Trump recently asked Congress to expand the NASA budget by an additional $1.6Billion in order to expedite putting Americans back onto the Moon by 2024, but the request was blocked by Democrats.

I think the Chinese are going to the OTHER side of the moon,the side we can't see, so, no.
