    Everyone knows you cannot go round to the dark side, those aliens in their hidden bases will destroy anything landing there!

    Everyone keeps wondering why we have not gone back to the moon, stop wondering.

    The Chinese tech is quite advanced.
    It will be exciting when they put a human on the moon, probably the "dark" side. :-)

    Wow, that is pretty cool. The reason for the dark side landing is for lower EM interference is interesting.
    Thanks Bryan for sharing.
