Home / Science / China will start historical mission to the long side of the moon

China will start the world’s first mission to the multitude. Its Chang’s 4 robotic spacecraft is scheduled to lift off Friday around 1:30 p.m. ET (2:30 in China, Saturday 8 December) reported Space.com.

The spacecraft will be launched on a long March 3B rocket from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in the southwestern part of Sichuan. Plans call Chang 4, which carries both a landlord and a moon stirrer, to touch the moon in early January.

“Everything we land on the moon is significant, but this is especially so,” David Paige, a planet scientist at the University of California, Los Angeles, said about the mission.

It is a successor to China’s Chang’s 3 mission, which successfully placed a landlord and robs on the moon’s earthy side 2013.

Chang 4’s planned landing location is located in southern Polish Aitken Basin. The spreading pool, which is 8 miles deep and more than 1 500 miles above, is one of the largest and oldest craters of the moon.

“This crater has the potential to tell us about the creation of the earth and moon system – how the moon was formed, as well as how the early solar system developed,” Paige said. “Understand exactly when this pool is formed and how it is related to other control pools is the key.”

Landers and rowers are equipped with cameras. The rover also sports a groundbreaking radar instrument designed to help scientists understand the geological history of the moon as well as a spectrometer to study its chemical composition.

Chang 4 will not return a few moonstones to earth, but a subsequent mission scheduled for 2019, Chang 5, will come. This would be the first time that material from the Moon has been returned to Earth since the Soviet Union’s Luna 24 mission in 1976.

“These missions take place in rapid succession, and it also shows that this program is relegated to moving forward towards it final goal of putting Chinese astronauts on the moon, “Bradley Jolliff, planet scientist at Washington University in St Louis, told NBC News MACH in an email.

China has also announced plans to launch a rover for March 2020, as well as further crew announcements.

China had built its own space station, Tiangong-2. But a rocket glitch in July 2017 blocked the effort, and China is now planning to circumvent the 8,6-tonlab spacecraft next summer, reported Space News. In April, China’s suspended Tiangong-1 space station lowered through the earth’s atmosphere and burned across the Pacific Ocean.

China, the United States and Russia are the only nations to successfully land spacecraft on the moon.
