Sigh... Don't you people understand that the more realistic habitual areas we have (or can make), other then our small marble of a planet, the more likely our species will continue to thrive, and the less likely our planet issues insofar as making more habitat room by intruding upon other species habitats? Research in technology and science/physics is an advancement in mankind as a whole.

Most of your precieved "solve problems down here" issues are issues that mankind inflicted upon themselves. Starvation? Either issues with the government taking resources from their own people, a military junta, or an overall lack of government across the board. Feel like having the Iraq war across the world with every undeveloped country with a bad government?

Diseases? Lack of available technology, education, and yes, government giving a shit.

*Note: there will never be a cure for AIDS. For you smart kids out there, AIDS is a virus. We can make an antibody or a medical treatment to make people immune to a certain strand of HIV, but as soon as that strand changes, the vaccine is useless. Point aside, it's such a preventable disease, that is associated with lack of sexual education, and low medical sterilization standards.

Anyone who goes there will die of solar winds and radiation anyways.

So I say they both go. But knowing NASA, maybe USA in a couple of years when they've got the technology.

US will be first. I think Chinese shuttle would break down since half the Chinese products all seem to be either not working or killing people anyway. Every industry I've worked with always mention bad experiences with Chinese manufacturers.

It won't be soon tough, unless people begin acting even more retarded. We have no money and space aeronautics divisions have been downsizing left and right.

Seeing that USA already probed Mars and landed on the moon I suppose they would be the first. Unless all rocket scientists migrate to China due to the current financial crisis. (Ah, new topic!)

China's space program (hinged on Russia's space technology) is not yet at par with the US's so I guess, US will make send someone first.

USA, I just think china is much busier with other things than just launching a rocket. Plus the legit rocket scientists from china usually end up helping USA instead because of higher pay and better opportunity.
