Want To Work For Russia?

The Russian Space Agency is hiring. Not just anybody, they're after NASA personnel who have been working on returning to the Moon to use its resources.

Clearly, history is repeating. After World War II, America grabbed the cream of the crop of German rocket scientists who had developed the V2 rocket which killed thousands of Britons during the war. They were brought to America and succeeded in getting Americans on the Moon within 25 years.

Now that Obama is ending American manned spaceflight, it's clear that Russia knows what is at stake on the Moon. "We will bury you," Krushchev said. It's a race between the Russians and the Chinese to bury America now.
