When an out-of-control Chinese booster rocket crashed into the Indian Ocean earlier this month, space experts were confused how an advanced space agency that just landed a rover on Mars could be so “negligent” as to refuse to install basic propulsion systems to guide the rocket’s safe return to Earth.

The current best guess? As long as the rocket wasn’t coming back to hit China, Chinese officials viewed the risk of hitting a population center low enough that it would be better off paying “compensation” for any damages rather than use any more limited space-borne fuel. After all, the fuel burned in a controlled landing would necessitate an earlier refueling of the rocket’s payload, the first stage of China’s first long-term space station — China’s gateway to the moon and beyond.

So why is China rushing? The grand ambition of China’s spacefaring operational timetable demands it can’t spare even a single launch for an extra refueling operation. China plans to complete its massive new space station by the end of next year and has partnered with Russia to build mankind’s first lunar base. Additionally, China has committed to returning samples from Mars by 2030, putting it in direct competition with a joint European-American mission to be the first to make a successful return voyage from Mars.

Make no mistake: China has declared a space race, aiming to surpass the West by the end of the decade.

The first settlements in space will set the tone and basis for man’s long exodus from the confines of Earth. The United States needs to return its focus to space to ensure the future of mankind is free, open, and conducive to American interests.

China has proven its commitment to exporting its techno-dystopian population control systems to fellow totalitarian regimes across the world, and space will be no different. Indeed, China’s coordination of visual, audio, spatial, and biometric monitoring via artificial intelligence to implement inescapable systems of complete oppression reduces humans to mere productivity assets and suffocates the human spirit.
