We should go to the moon first to mine HELIUM 3 as it is something we do not have on this earth. Just a couple of KG will make China the wealthiest in the world.

Exactly Mr. Manoj, that's why it need technological

....innovations at MASSIVE SCALE!

Imagine ANCIENT CHINA, they first MASTERED the Rivers!
China had big public works, building canals, lakes, complete internal canal, river, lake logistic systems!
It continued to build huge irrigation systems that are still in used!

and China developed the INSTITUTIONS and CULTURE of the modern state!
State Bureaucracy, the Middle Class, Farmers, the Working class and Shaolin/bonded serf to solve excessive population! THEN IT STAGNATED!

The Son of Heaven, the first MING EMPEROR ordered that lousy Eunuch to survey to the world, using various excuses. Yet, not much "improvements" could be attained, as VESTED INTEREST within China "defeated" the initiatives!

THEY DID SAY, once upon a time, that "horseless carriage" is nonsense!
Today, it's one of the key industries in the modern world!
PROGRESS!

Now, China needs to developed beyond what the BRITISH EMPIRE, and AMERICAN EMPIRE has managed!
Anyway, we just talk for fun, China is already "working on all this now"!

It's not paying off to get Uranium from space... better use diffrent material, for instance Thorium, which would even allow you to build liquid reactors that are far more safe and efficient (yet st ...


still need helium for the reactors

even though it is a most abundant element, on-shore reservoirs are scant

india has truckloads of thorium

not a bad source of fissile material

i think we are screwed, but the asteroid idea is nice

that's what the CONSERVATIVES said about the STEAM LOCOMOTIVE, and iron STEAM BOATS!
inventions that made ENGLAND, the biggest and richest empire on earth!

With nuclear bombs, Star war ICBM interception technology, SSN, SSBN, long range stealth bombers, secret Hypersonic suborbital British and American spacecraft, it's a race waiting to start! Earthly WARS can be quite devastating to contemplate!

Huge River commerce, Water Canals, Man made lakes was CHINA BRIGHTEST HOUR! (in fact, for most part of world's history - from BC to 1830 AD when the British Empire surpass it!
Global Sea trade, Steam power was BRITAIN'S BRIGHTEST HOUR!
National Large Scale Market, Texan Crude oil was USA BRIGHTEST HOUR!

Now there is the American consortium, A Russian consortium, and China is WAY BEHIND the race to the new frontier!
