A Chinese ‘Death Star’ Moon Base?

A “Death Star” Chinese moon base? As strange as it might sound, that is in fact what reports coming out of China are saying.

A recent article in the China Times has revealed that this week’s Long March-3B rocket launch was in fact part of a long term plan to set up a military base on the moon. Officials have indicated that China’s launch of a lunar rover, Beijing’s first spacecraft to land on the lunar surface, is in fact part of a plan to set up an installation on the moon, where missiles could be launched.

An English-language outlet of the The China Times Group, the Want China Times cites the Beijing Times, affiliated with the People’s Daily, the source of the original report.

The shocking headline PLA dreams of turning moon into Death Star, says expert, cites that “experts in China” are trying to determine how the moon “Can be transformed into a deadly weapon. Like the Death Star in Star Wars, the moon could hypothetically be used as a military battle station and ballistic missiles could be launched against any military target on Earth.”

The article continues that, “Various weapons testing sites could also be established on the moon,” citing that the Long March-3B rocket launch is merely the start of “a more ambitious program” to this “Death Star” end.

Western media has been largely silent on these claims, in part perhaps because there is some question of the legality of using the moon for such purposes. There are thus more unanswered questions than answers at this time.

Stay tuned…
