The space race continues: after China announced it is going to the moon in order to scoop up the valuable Helium 3 fuel for its fusion reactors, Europe and Russia said they were going too, then NASA said it was planning a mission?ostensibly to do “research,” but doubtless so that no one else can lay claim to this incredibly valuable fuel. Now the German space agency is preparing for a mission to the moon.

Walter Doellinger, the head of the German Space Program, says it will be ready to send an unmanned space shuttle into orbit around the moon by 2013. The German’s have their own cover story for making this incredibly expensive journey: Doellinger says, “We want to show that Germany has the know-how.”
