China Goes Rock Hunting

Chinese Spacecraft Enters Orbit Around the Moon

According to ground controllers, the service module contains support systems that reportedly are all operating smoothly. The module now orbiting the moon is loaded with gear to collect further data useful in planning China's Chang'e 5 lunar missionset for 2017, said state broadcaster, China Central Television.


Chang'e 5 would be a robotic sample-return mission aimed at making a soft landing on the moon and then scooping up several pounds of lunar rocks and soil for the return trip to Earth.
