For the first time, China is trying to obtain samples from the moon
Since the 1970s, China has been trying to obtain rock samples from the moon. It is preparing to launch the (Chang'e 5) probe next Tuesday to carry out this mission, and if it succeeds, China will be the third country to obtain samples from the moon after the United States of America and Russia.
The name (Chang-e5) comes from the ancient Chinese moon goddess.
The mission of the probe is to collect 2 kilograms of rocks in the area that humans have not reached on the surface of the moon, which is called (the ocean of storms). Experts hope from this experience that they will reach a more understanding of how the moon remained in volcanic activity and know the time when the magnetic field was lost, and that information will be useful in protecting life on the surface of the earth from sun damage.
In the next 10 years, China hopes to collect samples from Mars.
