Im from USA
My question always was if we got there in 1969 how come we have not been back but only cause another country is about to get there...
Did we even get there the 1st time...??
well after 69 the vietnam war was starting to get sticky and we were pulling out, so there was that going on. That lasted until about 74. Then only a few years after the cold war started up taking much of the money from NASA, then by the time the cold war ended stuff was too old to use practicly, and there had been major leaps in technology, so the shuttle was developed and made and we were more interested in doing experiements and sending rovers and satellites to other planets then landing on the moon
As for the china thing: what, is chica gonna stack it's people all up on top of each other and get there before us?
