With the success of the unmanned Chinese moon landing on the far side of the moon, we wonder when the first Chinese astronauts, or better taikonauts, will travel to the moon? In this video, we not only explain the latest Chinese moon mission Chang'e-4, but also give an overview of the Chinese human spaceflight ambitions which surprisingly date back to the 1970s.
⚠️WARNING: This episode contains insane conspiracy theory jokes!⚠️
Chang'e 4 was launched on 7 December 2018 and successfully landed on 3 January 2019 on the South Pole-Aitken Basin. This certainly marks a significant progress of the Chinese Lunar Exploration Program (CLEP). And if you are wondering why the Chinese space program contains so many weird names, there are actually some beautiful ancient legends behind these names!
The lunar lander is named after the Chinese goddess of the moon "Chang'e"🌙 The name "Yutu" of the lunar rover literally translates to "Jade Rabbit"🐰 In Chinese folklore, the rabbit is often portrayed as a companion of the goddess Chang'e living on the moon and pounds the elixir of life for her. Then, the name "Queqiao" of the communication relay satellite means "Magpie Bridge"🐦 in Chinese and is derived from another ancient folklore. You've probably heard of the Chinese Valentine's Day, the so-called Qixi Festival. It's celebrated on the seventh day of the seventh month of the lunar calendar and is supposed to be the single day in a year, on which a legendary cowherd can meet his goddess wife. The couple is unfortunately not allowed to live together, and only on this special day the magpies would build a magical bridge for them to meet across the Milky Way.
So what are the future plans of the Chinese moon project? Even though no official timeline is publicly available, it's kind of an open secret that the Chinese space agency is working on manned lunar explorations. Early engine tests of a heavy lift rocket, which would bring taikonauts to the moon, are already underway. The rocket is called Changzheng 9 or Long March 9. It's supposed to have a quite formidable lift capacity similar to the Saturn V, and being only slightly weaker than SpaceX's super heavy.
It almost seems as if everyone is taken by surprise on China's incredible fast pace, with which China is catching up in space. So who will be the first bringing human back to the moon in this new moon race, or better space race? The Chinese, NASA's Space Launch System (SLS), or SpaceX's starship/super heavy system? In any case, China's moon ambitions have certainly encouraged the global development of space technologies. We're really looking forward to the next milestone in human spaceflight within the next few years.

Despite being the most successful electric car manufacturer and a pioneer in clean energy, why is there so much NEGATIVE NEWS on Tesla? Who is actually profiting from all those negative news stories? We have been asking ourselves these questions for a long time. Now we share with you the both sad and disgusting answer in this video.
First, big oil companies and legacy car makers obviously see their existence being threatened by the increasing popularity of Tesla cars. Unfortunately, these traditional companies often have a huge influence on national governments and mainstream news media. As a result, news articles about Tesla are often negatively biased.
We are not saying that the negative news on Tesla don't have any truth in it, but the news media is deliberately highlighting any tiny adverse story about Tesla they could find. At the same time, any positive development of Tesla and any positive impact of electric cars on our society are presented in a minimalist manner.
For example, you might have heard of a lot of "Another Tesla car caught fire" headlines during the last three years. Therefore, an electric car must be much more dangerous than a gasoline or a diesel car, right? Because a gasoline or a diesel car never burn, right? Absolutely NO! According to a report from the National Fire Protection Association of the US, there were 174,000 vehicle fires only in 2015. But why does nobody mention this pretty relevant statistical detail in any of those Tesla fire news? Hmmm.....
Besides the major players in the automobile industry, Tesla shorters from big hedge funds are another important driving force behind the aggressively negative news headlines on Tesla. By exaggerating any negative development of Tesla or Elon Musk, financial manipulators have been making huge profits from the sudden and dramatic drops of Tesla stock.
This market manipulation strategy is called FUD: Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt. It's not a new disinformation strategy, but many people are still unaware that this strategy is currently being systematically used against Tesla. Something very familiar to us from the bitcoin and crypto currency space.
We hope we could bring a little bit light behind the constant flood of the biased news report on Tesla, and we are curious to hear your thoughts in the comment section!

Welcome;) You've found two nerds, one Chinese called Jixuan, and one Romanian called Sebastian. We are passionate supporters of electric cars and manned spaceflight.
Hence you will not only find news analysis on Tesla and SpaceX, two extremely innovative and successful companies linked by Elon Musk, but also in-depth discussions about EVs and space exploration in general on this channel.
Furthermore, we do various range tests and road trips with our blue Performance Model 3, which is the best car we've ever owned.
We promise to upload videos once per week and we're looking forward to your thoughts and comments in any of our videos!
