US China Moon Rivals

FILE - In this photo released by China's Xinhua News Agency, the return capsule of the Shenzhou-13 manned space mission is seen after landing at the Dongfeng landing site in northern China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, April 16, 2022. Three Chinese astronauts returned to Earth on Saturday after six months aboard China's newest space station in the longest crewed mission to date for its ambitious space program. It's not just rocket fuel propelling America's first moonshot after a half-century lull. Rivalry with China's space program is helping drive NASA's effort to get back into space in a big way. That's as both nations push to put people back on the moon and establish the first lunar bases. (Peng Yuan/Xinhua via AP, File)
