t just ended, Yutu 2 and Chang’e 4’s lander, which has also entered a dormancy period, obtained a great deal of scientific data.
A lunar day equals 14 days on Earth, and a lunar night is the same length. During the lunar n上海后花园
ight, the temperature falls below minus 180 C, and there is no sunlight to provide power to the probe.
上海后花园Chang’e 4 was lifted atop a Long March 3B rocket in early December at the
Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Sichuan province to make the country’s fourt
h lunar exploration and the world’s first expedition to the moon’s far side, which never faces Earth.上海后花园女神会所
The probe made a soft landing on the far side on Jan 3 and then released Y
utu 2, the world’s seventh moon rover, and also the first to get to the far side and survey t
上海后花园he South Pole-Aitken basin, the largest and deepest known basin in the solar system.
The scientific tasks of the Chang’e 4 mission include low-frequency radio a
stronomical observation, surveying the terrain and landforms, and detecting the mine上海后花园女神会所
ral composition and shallow lunar surface structure, as well as measuring neutron radiation and neutral atoms.
上海后花园As no probe had landed on the far side before Chang’e 4, all scien
tific information obtained in the mission would be new, according to Zhang He, ex
ecutive director of the Chang’e 4 program at the China Academy of Space Technology.上海后花园女神会所
China’s next lunar probe, Chang’e 5, will weigh about 8.2 metric tons and will be the largest a
上海后花园nd heaviest lunar probe ever built by the country. It will consist of four components – orbiter, lander, ascender and
re-entry module. The probe will be sent by China’s largest carrier rocket, Long March 5, from the Wenchang Space Launch C
enter in the island province of Hainan in the near future. It will collect lunar samples and bring them back to Earth.上海后花园女神会所
If the Chang’e 5 mission succeeds, China will become the third nation to retrieve lunar samples, after the United States and Russia.
