The Chinese probe Zhang 5 landed on the moon successfully
At about eleven o'clock on Tuesday evening, the Chinese probe successfully landed on the surface of the moon, which is tasked with collecting samples from the moon and returning them to Earth for study. The Chinese Space Agency announced its launch on November 24.
It will shovel samples from the surface as well as from the soil to a depth of two meters, and then it will store those samples to return to the ground, and it will land in Mongolia, China.
Once completed, the Chang’e-5 probe will become part of the world's first unmanned sample return mission from the Moon in 40 years, and will make China the third country in the world to return samples from the Moon after the United States and the former Soviet Union.
It is considered one of the most complex and challenging Chinese space missions to date, and will contribute to scientific studies in areas such as the formation and evolution of the moon.
