Gegli news - China has a historic mission to the moon's far side - 12/8/2018 2:10:00 AM 2:10:00 AM
If it succeeds, the peaks of this year will be a major advance for the Chinese space program
China launched the world's first mission around the Moon.
Chang'e Robotic spacecraft was taken on Friday at 1:23 pm. The New York Times reported that at 2:23 pm in China on Saturday, December 8th.
The spacecraft launched on a long March 3B missile from the Xichang satellite launch facility in southwestern Sichuan. Plans for Chang'e 4, both carrying both satellite and landing, arrive in January to touch the moon.
"Everything that we land in the month is significant, but this one is especially true," said David Page, a planetary scientist at the University of California, Los Angeles, about the agent.
This is a successor to the China Chang'e mission, which was successfully landed in 2013 for ground and satellite landings.
The planned location of Chang'e 4 is located in the Aitak sub-basin. The scattered basin, a depth of 8 miles and more than 1,500 miles in it, is one of the largest and oldest moon spans.
"This crater has the potential to tell us about the creation of the earth and the moon system, how to form the moon, as well as how the solar system evolved," said Paige. "Knowing exactly when the basin is formed and how it interacts with other basins The lunar influence is the key. "
Each officer and cameraman are equipped. The rover also has a ground-based radar device to help scientists understand the geologic history of the moon as well as a spectrometer to study its chemical composition.
Chang'e 4 will not send any gems to the moon, but a successor mission will be scheduled for 2019, Chang'e 5. This is the first time that materials have been returned to Earth since the month after the Soviet Union mission, Luna 24, in 1976.
"These missions are happening all over quickly, and also shows that solving this program to move forward to the ultimate goal of placing Chinese astronauts on the moon's surface," said Bradley Jolliff, a planetary scientist at the University of Washington in St. Louis, to Email NBC News MACH said:
China has also announced plans to land on Mars by 2020, as well as low mission orbit missions.
China built its own space station, Tiangong-2. But the Missile Spacecraft disappeared in July 2017, and China is currently planning a space laboratory of 8.6 tons. In April, the Tiangong-1 Space Station, which was lost in China, fell through the Earth's atmosphere and burned more than the Pacific Ocean.
China, the United States and Russia are the only countries that have succeeded in landing the spacecraft of the moon.
