A Chinese eclipse

So China has sent a probe to the Moon. An impressive feet and I salute the men and women of reason whose dedication and genius made it possible. 

However when you control 1.35 billion - dozens of nations and languages - with a totalitarian state allowing the ruling elite to centralise wealth and dispose of it as they see fit then things seem a little less impressive. 

Much harder would be to achieve the democratic assent of a majority of citizens to pursue a space exploration programme.
