Why do we want to go to the moon?
*  For the free "Moon Cake"
*  For "face" and prestige, to show off to the world that we can do it too
*  Purely scientific purposes, it doesn't even help with astro-navigation
*  For military purposes only, a lunar laser beam will come in handy to measure or to blind
*  For mining naturally occurring HELIUM-3

In 10, at most 20 years from now, HELIUM-3 will be the U3O8 (yellow cake) of the future. It doesn't matter that one doesn't exactly understand why we need HELIUM-3 just yet. Back in 1421, the Ming Dynasty didn't understand enough to send settlers to the Americas.

HELIUM-3 is produced in a thermal-nuclear, or better still, a hydrogen bomb explosion. But the lunar surface is a rich source of naturally occurring HELIUM-3.

Let's hear it from all Chinese, scream at the top of your voice at Beijing so they hear, we want:
HELIUM-3
HELIUM-3
HELIUM-3


For those with an inquisitive mind, a web link for you:

Hey, if the Americans went first and planted their flag, doen't that mean the Helium 3 is on their territory?

Kinda like the Russians and their Polar exercise, I trink.

Distribution of 14 usable elements

He quoted Vice-Premier Zeng Peiyan's words, asking all participants to continue working hard to guarantee the project a complete success.
...
The Moon orbiter, Chang'e I, will provide 3D images of the Moon's surface, probe the distribution of 14 usable elements on the Moon, study lunar microwaves and estimate the thickness of the Moon's soil, earlier reports said.


We need a rover equipped with a state-of-art spectrometer.

Go China go! To the stars, through diligence and hard work.
