All countries suffer humiliation after defeat. Germany lost land in WW1 and WW2. Austria lost land in WW1. Turkey lost land in WW1. Japan lost land in WW2. Spain lost land to US and Britain. Russia lost land to Japan. China lost land to Britain and Japan. Russia lost land after losing Cold War. Turkey had to suffer 100 years of humiliation until 2023 when Erdogan changes constitution with a supposed Lausanne treaty expiration. Japan can't change constitution until 2045 100 years after defeat in WW2. Heck, even China suffered 100 years of humiliation after defeat by Britain at Opium war in 1841. It wasn't until 1949 when Mao said zhong guo ren min zhang qi lai le.


Okay your choice of wording "must suffer" is misleading and if what you actually mean to say, quite ridiculous indeed.

Taiwan is 125 km from mainland China (google map distance tool). While it's true Chinese land based aircraft have no trouble reaching Taiwan, surrounding Taiwan with several aircraft carrier battle groups is psychological warfare, and also provides quick deployment to quickly seize control of the island should the opportunity arise, similar to how Russia quickly seized control of Crimea before US could react.

Russia lacks the capability to land on the moon after the USSR fell. They will need help from China to reestablish a foothold on the moon again.

Russia has very small budget. They are having trouble keeping Roscosmos alive as it is. On top of that, COVID hit Russia hard, which made it that much harder for their space program.

Even if they want to, they have no know how to.

A lander that is not proven. Russia hasn't been able to orbit the moon since fall of USSR. They can't even send a probe to orbit moon let alone Mars. I'll believe it when I see they land on Mars.

Basically, Russia must endure 100 years of humiliation due to defeat of Cold War. They cannot have the political will anytime soon.

Russia, humiliation, blah blah blah, what thread is this? Could you not derail the discussion with your off-topic political nonsense?

From Henri Kenhmann

The CZ-5B Y2 rocket, which will be used in the launch of the core module of China's 1st Space Station this year, arrived at the Wenchang Space Center today.

(officially the 1st space station since the two Tiangongs were counted as experimental labs)

Due to China Exclusion Act, US is not allowed to cooperate with China in space. This means US will be left without a space station when ISS retires. Serves them right.

Well, pardon me my bluntness, but we are all walking the fine line between "bluntly bringing politics into the conversation to annoy everyone else" and "mingling political sentiment into our conversations ever so subtly as to go just under the annoyance radar of everyone else".

You would be a liar without a conscience, or a fool without any self-awareness, if you confidently assert that ALL OF YOUR CONVERSATIONS EVER POSTED in this forum is without even a hint of political thoughts.

Speak for yourself, but not for ALL of us.

I never once asserted that all my posts are free and clear of political content; you did that. In fact, only one post of mine is even remotely political. Feel free to look it up. Hint: It was about New York Times.

PS, I heard you have lots of straws.

End off-topic post.

of the container.

Height: 38.44cm, which symbolizes the average distance between planet Earth and the moon of 384,400km.
Width: 22.89cm, which symbolizes the mission duration of Chang'e-5 from launch to return.

The hollow sphere containing the sample represents the moon. Toward the base of the container, there is a map of planet Earth. The distance between the hollow sphere and the map is 9.9cm, which is a clever play on an
