Q&A Discussion with the LaRouchePAC Science Team, August 31, 2016, 4pm EDT

"We're going to discover what the back side of the Moon is. And from that standpoint, when we've made that experiment successfully, now we will set a new standard for describing what the meaning of mankind is."
(Lyndon LaRouche, March 2016)

China is leading the advancement of all mankind with its program to land a rover on and explore the far side of the Moon in 2018—something which has never been done by any nation before!

Join the Basement team for a presentation and discussion about the lunar far side. What is it?! Why is the far side of the Moon so different from the near side? What will China do there? And why is this so important for humanity's future?

    Not really a question here just a thought. While there are several ways to further develope nuclear energy generation, and all of those methods are employable, the Chinese plan to mine helium 3 from the lunar surface represents something different in scope. The intention related to this plan is pretty revolutionary and to me is absolutely an extension of human creativity in regards to exerting mankind’s influence on our solar system.To actually go into space, to the moon, in order to reach out further is exciting. Yet any type of nuclear powered delivery systems is fine with me.

    For a stop gap solution for fusion there is another alternative to uranium based nuclear power and that is Thorium based fission power. It seems to have a host of benefits plus there is enough Thorium on earth to satisfy our energy needs for thousands of years. Also very promising is the left over waste fuel is burned out and therefore has very little radioactivity left. What are your thoughts on this alternative?

    1) Recent near-miss asteroid reportedly twice as large as Chelyabinsk one, which was 10-20 KT. Only had hours of warning, for a 50,000-mile miss. Should we not be embracing the Russian proposal for SDE? And must we not maintain massive arsenal of modified thermonuclear weapons, to respond to the near-term NEO theat?
    2) Lyn laid out a comprehensive perspective for an effective space transportation system, back in 1988 with “Woman on Mars” broadcast, including a “Buseman bi-plane” or similar “scramjet” hybrid aerospace plane, Do we not need the same capability now? China is apparently preparing to build such a craft…

    Our current understanding of the Moon is that it has no atmosphere,but the latest Chinese probe indicates that there
    is an ionosphere. If that is the case,will that effect our intended placement of radio telescopes and other types of telescopes,
    on the far side?

    From my limited knowledge of China’s and America’s space programs, it seems that the U.S. still has substantial technical expertise and machine tool capability but lacks leadership and vision. China, on the other hand, while behind technically in many areas, is progressing rapidly and does have leadership with a sense of mission. It seems like a situation made for a match up. What do you think of this assessment?
