Chang’e-6 Mission: 53 days mission, 2 kg sample, plan to land at a place on the moon where no one has gone before

China seems ready to stand shoulder to shoulder with the United States in the space war. In this sequence, China has launched its mission on Friday to collect samples from the far side of the Moon. The Chang’e-6 probe is China’s most complex robotic Moon mission to date and marks an important milestone in Beijing’s effort to become a major space power. The ‘Chang’ lunar probe is named after a goddess found in Chinese myths. The far side of the Moon cannot be seen from Earth.

Mission of 53 days, will collect 2 kg sample

The 53-day mission is unprecedented and will be the latest advancement in China’s increasingly sophisticated and ambitious space exploration program, which has already landed a rover on the far side of the Moon, becoming the first country to do so. The mysterious far side of the Moon is ideal for radio astronomy and other scientific work, but requires relay satellites to maintain communications. According to CNSA, Chang’e-6 has four instruments – “orbiter, lander, ascender and re-entry module”. Through this mission, after collecting samples of dust and rocks on the Moon, the ascender will deliver them to the orbiter, which will transfer the samples to the re-entry module.

Moon mission named after the moon goddess

Through this mission, after collecting samples of dust and rocks on the Moon, the ascender will deliver them to the orbiter, which will transfer the samples to the re-entry module. After this, this module will bring these samples to Earth. CNSA had earlier said that the aim of the mission was to collect samples in an automated manner.The aim is to achieve success in key technologies like running and then returning them from the far side of the Moon.

Chandrayaan-3 Did a soft landing on the surface of the moon

China has also sent rovers to Mars. Earlier, China had announced its plan to land astronauts on the Moon by 2030. India is the first country to land a rover near the south pole of the Moon. Last year, India’s Chandrayaan-3 lander and Pragyaan rover had successfully landed there. The far side of the Moon, which never faces the Earth, is useful for radio astronomy and other scientific work.
