China’s spacecraft will land on Earth in three days
The spacecraft reached the moon earlier this month and collected about two kilograms of samples. The capsule is likely to land in the Inner Mongolia region after a three-day journey. The Chang E-5 is the most complex and challenging mission in China’s history of astronomy. This is the first such expedition in the world in more than 40 years in which efforts are being made to bring samples of the moon to the earth.
Chang E-5 hoisted the Chinese flag on the moon
Last Thursday, China’s astronaut Chang E-5’s Ascender hoisted a Chinese national flag made of cloth on the lunar surface just before take-off from the lunar surface. Explain that Chang E-5 is the third spacecraft of China to reach the lunar surface. Even before this, China has successfully landed two spacecraft on the moon. However, for the first time China is trying to get one of its spacecraft back from there.
This female scientist has a big role in ‘Moon Mission’
The role of 24-year-old space scientist Zhou Chengyu is said to be behind the Dragon’s successful moon mission. China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying has praised Zhou Chengyu by tweeting. Space scientist Zhou Chengyu comes from Tujia, the eighth largest ethnic group in China. He was known as the Big Sister of Honor, despite being the youngest commander at the Wenchang spacecraft launch site of the Chang-E-5 launch site. She was the commander of the rocket connector system. The commander of this system has a major role during the launching of any rocket.
Mission was launched by China’s most powerful rocket
If the Chinese mission successfully returns to Earth, it will increase their understanding of the Moon and it will help them settle on the Moon. Long March-5 rocket has been used to bring the Chinese spacecraft to the moon. This rocket operates with the help of liquid kerosene and liquid oxygen. This Chinese powerful rocket is 187 feet long and weighs 870 tons.
A spacecraft will bring a sample from the moon after 44 years
After 44 years on the lunar surface, such a spacecraft has landed and will return from here after taking a sample. Earlier, Russia’s Luna 24 mission landed on the lunar surface on 22 August 1976. Then Luna returned with him 200 grams of soil from the moon. Whereas, this spacecraft of China will come back with 2 kg of soil.
Two missions already exist on the moon surface
Two missions to China are already present on the lunar surface. In 2013, a spacecraft named Cheng-e-3 reached the lunar surface. Whereas in January 2019, Cheng-E-4 landed on the lunar surface with lander and Utu-2 rover. It is being told that these missions are still active.
