China’s first lunar rover separates from Chang’e-3 moon lander early Dec.

Chinese scientists have identified a new kind of rock on the moon. An unmanned Chinese lunar lander, launched in 2013, has explored an ancient flow of volcanic lava and identified mineral composition entirely unlike anything collected by the American astronauts between 1969 and 1972, or by the last Soviet lander in 1976.

The news, dispatched from an impact crater in the Mare Imbrium, is another reminder that planetary exploration is no longer the preserve of the Russians, the Americans or the European Space Agency: Japan, India and China have all launched lunar orbiters on their own rockets. Britain launched its own satellite, Prospero, on its own rocket, Black Arrow, from its own launch site in Woomera, Australia, in 1971 and then withdrew from the space race.

    You have both types of arthritis? Aw. I can’t imagine the pain you have. I would be a basket case, I’m not stalwart. I’ve warned my daughter when it’s my turn to be sick I’m going to make everyone miserable. She said she knows and that she’s going to put me in a home, lol.

    Bob is pretty stalwart. If I had his problems I would probably end up crying all damn day. Heck, I sometimes cry FOR him in his misery.

    Do you think as the weeks go by your body will get over the loss of the steroids and statins and stop hurting? I hope that’s what happens.
