Beijing hopes that the unmanned probe “Chang E-5”, which will launch to the moon next Tuesday, will succeed in returning samples of rocks that help to understand the origin, nature and composition of the moon.

The last space mission of this kind was launched in 1976 using the “Luna 24” probe, launched by the former Soviet Union.

If this probe succeeds in its mission, China will be the third country to obtain rocks from the moon after the United States and the Soviet Union.
