The TV journalist was trying to get the former NASA astronaut to say how frightening it was that the Chinese had landed a machine on the dark side of the Moon and he said (in so many words) "I've trained and lived alongside Russian and Chinese cosmonauts- and none of us was interested in national prestige or military advantage; we were doing what we did on behalf of Humanity."

I heard in interview here with someohe from NASA who said "They will share the information with us just like we always share the information."

But - but - the moon belongs to America! They put a flag on it! Finders keepers!

I admire his attitude, and I would love to believe that most other people operate in this way. :-)

He's had the experience of viewing the Earth from space. That changes people.
