Chinese robotic spacecraft successfully sailed to the Moon.
Launched on November 24, 2020 from the Wenchang Space Launch Center in Wenchang, the Long March-5 Y5 rocket successfully sent Chang’s 5 spacecraft to Earth-Moon orbit, weighing about 8 tons. The spacecraft’s mission is to collect about 2 kilograms of rock and soil samples from the Moon and return. Travel back to the world is planned to land on Chang 5, the Siziwang Banner area of Inner Mongolia in China.
7 missions in the last 20 years for China Moon exploration
On the other hand, if this landing made by China on the Moon is successful, the first country to send spacecraft to the Moon in 1959 will be the third country after the Soviet Union and the USA. As can be seen in the report below, China’s love for the moon is more than other countries. After China, which has served 7 times in the last 20 years, America comes with 3 different positions. Mankind first landed on the Moon in 1969 with the mission of Apollo 11, astronauts from Americans Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins.
