Put the rest of Earth’s Alien hunters on notice, folks. China has turned on its alien-hunting telescope, and it is the world’s largest.
As I’ve intimated in other places – I don’t care what nation of humanity explores space, or for what reasons. I’m lumping us all together and considering it a win for us barely not-primates. This weekend China landed on the fucking moon. So I’m high-fiving for all of us.
Hit the jump to check it out.
I think I’m a pretty open-minded dude. Peace, love, and respect of one another’s cultures, man. Or at least I thought I was. ‘Cause now I’m staring at a batch of a Chinese delicacy and wondering just what the fuck in tarnation is going on here. Urine-boiled eggs, also referred to as Virgin Boy Eggs. Wut.
Now listen. I’m not totally bitter about the United States’ fucking shitty space program. But I’m totally bitter about the United States’ shitty space program. They can afford zillion dollar embassies in sandy places across the Earth, but they can’t send people to the Moon anymore. China? China can.
Fucking China. First they’re getting dope speech balloon-shaped comic book museums, now they’ve got Diablo V and its expansion pack while we’re all waiting for the third. Jealousy.
China’s got it good. They own like 95% of America (rough estimate), and they’re going to use their cheddar to do dope stuff. Like build a museum to comics that is shaped like a comic book speech bubble and expensive as fuck. Ah, to dream.
More proof that we are merely living in the shadow of China and its ingenious ways these days. They’ve rolled out virtual property insurance. Protect them polygons! Fuck, you’ve spent more time harvesting ore or some shit in EVE Online than you have with your family, and you certainly love it more.
