The NASA trembles: China stepped on rhe moon and these are the best images of the trip
China has always been interested in issues related to space.
In fact, during the last few years they have made a great leap with respect to space exploration through the development of a series of last generation programs specially prepared for this purpose.
The Exploration on the Moon Program turns out to be the best example. Said program is formed by a series of lunar orbiter, spacecraft, scout vehicles, landing modules, among others. That has been linked to the Long March rockets.
IN DECEMBER 2013, CHANGE’3 WAS LAUNCHED
The spacecraft named Change’3, managed on December 6 of that year to enter the orbit of Luna and it took 8 days to land (December 14), so it managed to make history as the first spacecraft to land slowly in the Moon.
The images that this spacecraft has captured have been amazing, of the most beautiful ever seen.
CHINA PLANS GREAT THINGS ON THE MOON
It seems that China has reached the maximum in terms of space exploration.
In fact, they have recently developed a strategy that will last 10 years and aims not only to explore the Moon but also to explore the planets.
China plans to send a series of landers to several sides of the Moon and land humans on the lunar surface.
Recall that China launched its first lunar probe at a relatively recent date as it was in 2007. The Chang’e 1, a lunar orbiter, was a success, and in 2010 it would be followed by its twin sister Chang’e 2. Last year China took a great leap with Chang’e 3, which landed impeccably on the Moon and deployed the small Yutu rover.
In 2016, Chang’e 4 will take off, a twin of the improved Chang’e 3. Chang’e 5, much larger and heavier, will be the first Chinese lunar probe to use the new Long March CZ-5 rocket.
