The U.S. Congress passed an Act in 2015 precisely to do that for the U.S. Also nobody’s landed on the far side of the moon.

Definitely not anyone from Brazil. Last time you tried to launch a rocket it exploded on the launch pad and took your entire space program with it. Leave the complicated stuff to the real countries, Brazil.

In ten years, I would bet there will be a thousand Chinese astronauts on the moon. They do things when they set their minds to it
