I asked former Planetary Society Executive Director Louis Friedman for a statement on the successful launch of Chang'E 2 this morning, since current Executive Director Bill Nye is traveling, returning from the IAC in Prague. Lou said:

"Congratulations to the Chinese National Space Agency and our colleagues at the Chinese Academy of Space Technology on their new mission to the Moon. We look forward to hearing more about it, and about the results from their previous mission. In a few weeks NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden will be visiting Beijing. This mission and new U.S. space station and space exploration plans form a basis for international cooperation in advancing the exploration of the solar system.
