For the first time since the 1970s, Reuters reports a mission has taken samples from the moon back to Earth. China’s capsule isolated from its orbiter and arrived in Inner Mongolia at around 2 AM nearby time. As indicated by China’s Xinhua news agency, its parachute opened as arranged and the case has been recuperated by an inquiry group.
It’s being carried to Beijing where it will be opened. China’s space agency considered this to be as a stage toward maintained lunar missions, and the foundation of a base on the moon. This mission launched in late November, planning to gather four pounds of samples from a zone that is more youthful than the region Apollo space explorers visited during the 60s and 70s.
The Chang’e-5 mission is returning only days after Japan’s space organization recuperated tests its Hayabusa2 test took from the space rock Ryugu, and two or three months after NASA’s OSIRIS-REx make got space rock tests of its own.
