China has successfully launched an unmanned mission to the moon. Lander, the space probe named after the Chinese moon goddess “Chang ?? e 5”, is to touch down on the earth’s satellite and bring rock samples back to earth for the first time in 44 years. Researchers are now eagerly awaiting the moon rocks, which will be significantly younger than all previous samples and could therefore provide new insights into the moon’s history.
With a successful return, China would be the only space nation to succeed in such a project after the US and USSR in the 1960s and 1970s. With a rocket of the “Long March 5” type, the spacecraft rose smoothly local time Tuesday morning (Monday night CET) from the space station at Wenchang on the southern Chinese island of Hainan.
An hour and a half later, “Chang ?? e 5” developed his solar mood for the power supply. A little later, control center manager Zhang Xueyu announced that the launch had been “a complete success.” The space probe is to land on Sunday in what is called the “Ocean of Storms” – that is, in the upper left, side of the moon’s side facing the Earth.
