> Not bad for the Chang'e ship (apparently pronounced "Ch-ong-er" after the
> snooping woman in her husband's personal items, who feared being caught,

> her rabbit that now manufacture herbal remedies).
> By the time we see manned voyages back to the Moon, a thriving business in
> Chinese restaurants will be serving travelers take-out.
> The Chinese do have a sense of humor. Curiously, Apollo 11 (Armstrong,
> Collins, Aldrin, 1969) and Houston joked about this Chinese legend upon
> arriving by the Moon in what was to become the first Moonwalk, and now
> China has contending for the last laugh,
> Mission Control: "...Chinese girl called Chang-o has been living there for
> 4000 years. It seems she was banished to the moon because she stole the
> pill for immortality from her husband. You might also look for her
> companion, a large Chinese rabbit, who is easy to spot since he is only
> standing on his hind feet in the shade of a cinnamon tree. The name of the
> rabbit is not recorded."
> Michael Collins: "OK we'll keep a close eye for the bunny-girl."
> Best Wishes,
