Planetary scientists using the Hubble Space Telescope have spotted a dark mini-moon orbiting the distant dwarf planet Makemake. The moon, nicknamed MK 2, is roughly 160 km (100 miles) wide and orbits about 20,000 km (13,000 miles) from Makemake.

No other country is trying to go to any other planet but there focused on space to gain a upper hand on military power from space by knocking out our satellites or delivering wmd war heads etc. We have China/north Korea, Iran,Russia that are focused on just that type of use for there space program not for going to Mars doesn't really matter what plant were able to go to when the sun has a complete melt down and turns to a white dwarf star a lot off planets will be destroyed by the explosion of the sun.
