    If it ain’t competitive, it ain’t American!

    1. I have looked at it, but it seems what it is about is “it ain’t American”.
      Or country like Russia and China didn’t want to be involved with the US led Artemis program. But have already been working with each other, this making it organization which is publicly “a thing” which is not the Artemis program.

      1. ChiComs want to steal Russian space technology now? The Russians have been getting snarky about the Chinese attempts to reverse engineer Soviet-era military technology (particularly jet engines). Are the Russians broke enough that the Chinese could bribe them?

  2. I just snickered at a mental image of: “UN demands Russia/ChiCom Mining Base to share the wealth under UN supervision” because, you know, the Outer Space Treaty and stuff.
