Get ready to be moonstruck (again) this Saturday

The super perigee moon will be nearly as close as last year’s eye-popping spectacle. No calamities predicted.

China plans manned moon mission
Nearly 40 years after humans last set foot on the moon, China has announced formal plans to develop a return mission. The most striking part of this announcement is not that they want to go back, but that they plan to do it by developing their own technology and support systems, essentially recreating a half century of NASA’s achievements by themselves.
And all this while the U.S. still has no vessel of its own to get people to space. Will this be the sign of a shift in space power? Or a call to arms to get our manned space program back on track to lead?
