China’s Change-5 mission landed on the moon on Tuesday. He is about to bring about 2 kg of soil and rock from the moon to the earth. The landing of this robotic mission, launched a week ago, was not covered live by TV channels as before, but the program stopped and the news flashed as soon as the mission touched the moon’s surface.
Explain that it will stay there for the next two days to test the surrounding environment and collect surface samples with the help of a camera, spectrometer, radar, scoop, and drill. Similar work was done by Soviet Luna 24 Mission in 1976, but he came with only 200 grams of soil and rock samples. On 24 November, the spacecraft was launched from Henan province in a highly powerful Long March-5 rocket. Explain that the US sent astronauts to the moon to collect samples. Whereas the then Soviet Union launched an unmanned spacecraft on the moon to collect samples.
The Chinese spacecraft’s lander will excavate the soil and rock on the lunar land. Then will take this sample and go to Asander. Asander will fly through the surface of the Moon taking samples and will connect with the main vehicle circling in space. The main spacecraft will then place samples of the lunar surface in a capsule and then send them off to Earth. This entire mission may take more than 20 days.
It is going to happen after almost four decades that when a country will dig the surface of the moon and bring rock and soil from there to the earth. Long March-5 rockets have been used to bring China’s spacecraft to the moon. This rocket runs with the help of liquid kerosene and liquid oxygen. This Chinese powerful rocket is 187 feet long and weighs 870 feet.
