China is going to build a moon rocket

August 11, 2010 – 4:12 pm

A catchy title for a news story where details are pretty much in the dark. The news seems to be, that China has either started researching, or maybe agreed upon, or maybe implemented financing, or something else of a heavy lift rocket capable of sending humans to the moon. The exact stage of the project seems unclear to me and varies from news source to news source. Here is the BBC article on the new Chinese moon rocket.

The bottom line is, we don’t know exactly, but we can assume that Chinese politicians agreed and the engineers started development work for a Chinese moon rocket strong enough to put at least one person on the moon. The schedule says they will be ready in 12 years from now, which is the year 2022. Well, large scale project always get delayed, so I keep up my prediction that the earliest date for a Chinese person landing on the moon still is the year 2027.
