Topic: China to Launch Spacecraft to Collect Material from the Moon
Summary: China’s space agency is making final preparations to launch a spacecraft to the moon to collect material from the lunar surface.
If the effort is successful, it will be the first time in more than 40 years that any nation has brought back samples from the moon.
The unmanned spacecraft is named Changes after the ancient Chinese female god of the moon. It is set to launch early Tuesday aboard a Long March-5Y rocket. It will blast off from China’s Wenchang launch center on the southern island of Hainan. The spacecraft is expected to take three days to reach the moon.
The mission will make China only the third nation to collect lunar samples, following the United States and the Soviet Union.
The Chinese mission aims to drill down 2 meters into the moon’s surface and collect at least 2 kilograms of rocks and other material, the U.S. space agency NASA says.
The Chang’e-5 spacecraft includes four different modules that will work together to complete the mission.
