    i don't know how big a deal this is, but they seem to think it is. If people who know about this stuff think it's just propaganda, oh well. Here it is anyway.

    I guess they're releasing the image's so that people can pick their piece of the pie before Gingrich get's it all?

    We have telescopes that can see other galaxies, not sure why this is a big deal.

    Still looks like a big rock to me.
    Although after a little thought, it would probably be a great place for TPB to set up servers. Kind of out of everyone else's jurisdiction. :laugh:

    Ghost in the Shell had a similar thing, except the servers/data wasnt located on the moon but on a satellite somewhere in space orbiting the earth.

    Nice of you to catch up China. Pretty soon you will have your own little 1969 and put a man on the moon.
