China, the Chang’e-5 spacecraft back to earth with lunar soil samples

After the USA and Russia, the Asian power also collected fragments of our natural satellite – Ansa /Courier TV

Mission accomplished for the unmanned space probe, Chang’e-5. The China National Space Administration said the vehicle, which was sent to the moon on December 1, landed safely in the Inner Mongolia region of northern China with a cargo of fragments from the natural satellite. With this mission, China became the third country in the world to have recovered lunar samples, after the United States and the Soviet Union in the 1960s and 1970s. The delicate operation of connecting in lunar orbit with the part of the spacecraft, which brought the samples back to Earth, will allow Chinese scientists to study in depth the origins, formation and volcanic activity of the Moon on its surface.
