Chinese Lunar Rover Jade Rabbit is Safe and Sound

It had been thought to be in a state of disrepair. The Yutu or Jade Rabbit lunar rover, launched from Chinese soil, had survived a freezing night in outer space. 

Despite the worst fears of the Chinese people, it started functioning again after the brief time span of a single day. This was greeted as very good news indeed by a whole nation (the most populous in the world). 

Named after the pet rabbit of the Moon Goddess, Chang’e, the lunar mobile had for all purposes come to a halt after developing several complications due to inclement weather. 

But there were reserves it had that no one knew about. After the first few weak signals the hopes of the people were ignited and all of China cheered in gratitude. 

China plans to put a man on the moon later on. Even a space station orbiting planet earth is not out of the question. As for this token vehicle, it was just a beginning although a rickety one. 

The land which gave us beautiful Ming vases and the mythical fire breathing dragon still has a long way to go. Despite the fact that in matters of technology and infrastructure, China rules the world, it is in the fields of originality and creativity that it lacks the vitality and strength of the United States. 

The next 100 years will be an Asian Century, with China taking over the baton from the West. However, America will not give up its hegemony (of outer space or the planet) without a struggle.
