The Chinese probe orbits the moon with patterns attached to the earth

BEIJING – Chinese research is orbiting the moon on Monday to return samples of the lunar surface to Earth for the first time in nearly 45 years.

BEIJING – Chinese research is orbiting the moon on Monday to return samples of the lunar surface to Earth for the first time in nearly 45 years.

The ascending module of the Chang 5 spacecraft transferred a container with 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds) of specimens after being docked with the robot spacecraft on Sunday and then cut off.

The orbiter and reentry vehicle wait for the moon for another week on the narrow time window, about three days, 383,000 kilometers (238,000-miles) Journey back to Earth. It “bounces” from Earth’s atmosphere before disembarking and re-entering the Inner Mongolia’s vast stairwell before disassembling and floating on parachutes, where China’s Shenzhou crew spacecraft also made their landings.

If the mission is successful, it will make China the third country to bring lunar rocks to Earth after the United States and the former Soviet Union. These are the first recent models of the lunar surface obtained by scientists since the Soviet Union’s Luna 24 probe in 1976.

According to the China National Space Agency, the Chang 5 ascending phase exploded from the lunar surface on Friday, with the Chinese flag behind the flying lander module, according to the China National Space Agency, which released a photo taken in orbit that shows it approaching for its rendezvous, the Silver of the Earth visible in the background.

China has for the first time succeeded in lifting a spaceship from a celestial body, but no country has previously achieved the tricky feat of implementing robotic docking in lunar orbit. The controllers on the ground definitely had to deal with distance and time lag‌ Maneuver A clamp in a position where there is almost no room for error.

The 23-day mission has been front-page news in state media for days, coupled with reports that China has officially lifted all of its citizens out of extreme poverty. In addition to the propaganda coup for the ruling Communist Party, dual stories illustrate the vast economic and technological progress that China has made since becoming the third country in history to launch a man into space in 2003.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chuning praised the mission for its “courage to explore, overcome difficulties and work hard”.

“All the Chinese people are proud of the hard work and ingenuity of the Chinese lunar exploration researchers,” Hua told reporters Monday.

Through careful growing phases, China is now in the midst of ambitious missions that have provided little information about the development of a probe and reusable spacecraft en route to Mars.

The Chang Chandra program, named after the ancient Chinese lunar goddess, has also been operating the Chang 4 probe on the far less explored side of the moon for the past two years, while the Chang 3 rover, launched seven years ago, continues to send back data.

Future plans call for man to return to the moon five decades after American astronauts, along with a permanent moon base, have not been given a timeline. China is also building a permanent space station to launch in 2022.

The United States has opposed China’s secret, military – backed program of participating in the International Space Station, although the CNSA is expanding its ties with other programs, including the European Space Agency, to help guide Chang 5 on its mission.

Considered the site of ancient volcanic activity, the area near the Moon, also known as Mons Rumker, struck Chang 5 on December 1 over the Moon Sea.

Rocks and other debris were obtained by drilling a hole into the moon’s crust and scooping it directly from the surface. They are thought to be billions of years older than those brought back earlier and can provide insights into the history of the moon as well as other bodies in our solar system.

The lunar exploration program has set up specialized laboratories to analyze samples for age and composition. China is expected to share some of it with other countries, as it did with the hundreds of kilograms (pounds) of rocks, sand, dust and other specimens obtained by the United States and the former Soviet Union.
