What could Earths combined space programs be like if Russia, The United States, India, Japan and China combined their expertise and set up a lunar base and even did a manned mission to Mars?

What untold benefits could be gleaned fro such missions?

Would these type missions foster greater trust between the powers?

Sorry, just a pipe dream. This would require those elected (in countries that actually hold elections) or those that attain power either through their gene pool, or ruthless power grabs, actually putting their ego's and agendas aside to actually cooperate.

Name a single elected official in this country that would put their ego or agenda aside, then you have to deal with leaders like those found in China, Korea, India, etc.
