Chinese mission Chang’e-5 landing on the lunar surface

In more than an hour, the landing module of the Chinese mission Chang’e-5 will begin its landing on the lunar surface.

Forty-four years, since the Soviet “Luna-24” in 1976, mankind has not sent spacecraft to the Moon for soil.

More importantly, the Chinese are not doing this for a couple of kilograms of regolith. This mission is another stepping stone to the Chinese lunar manned mission. Now they are going to practice takeoff from the surface and docking in lunar orbit.
