BEIJING – China has been preparing to launch a territorial mission early Saturday to mitigate the spacecraft at the most affordable distance of the moon, showing its growing ambitions as a space of power to rival Russia, the European Union and the United States.
With its 4-mission Chang, China hopes to be the first country for ever to successfully undertake such landing. The far side of the moon is also known as the dark side because it looks far from the Earth and remains relatively unknown, with a different composition of places at the next side, where previous missions landed.
If successful, the mission scheduled to operate on a Long March 3B rocket will propel the Chinese space program to a prominent position in one of the most important areas of lunar research.
China landed its Yutu, or "Jade Rabbit". rover on the moon for five years and plan to send Chang Chang 5 there next year and return to the Earth with samples – the first time that will take place since 1976. No lunar mission is also considered.
Chang 4 is also a common combination and will explore both above and under the lunar surface after arriving at the V Kar Karman from the South Pole-Aitken basin after 27 days.
It will also perform radio astronomical studies, since the far side will always move away from Earth, it will be "free from the suspension of our planet's ionosphere, radical frequencies and radiation radiation," an expert in space industry Leonard David wrote on the website Spaco.com .
It can also take seeds of silkorm plant and eggs, according to the official agency of Xinhua News.
Chang is the moon goddess in Chinese mythology.
China carried out its first shipbuilding mission in 2003, making it only the third country after Russia and the United States did so. It has placed a couple of space stations in an orbit, one of which still works as an advance to more than a 60-ton station, which must come online in 2022. The launch of a Mars wheel is scheduled for mid-2020s.
In order to facilitate communication between Earth rulers and Changing 4, China in May launched a relay satellite called Queqiao or "Magpie Bridge" after an old Chinese popular history.
China's space program has benefited from cooperation with Russia and European nations, although it was excluded from the 420 tuna International Space Station, mainly for US legislation prohibiting such co-operation between the concerns of its strong military relations. His program also suffered rare losses last year with the launch launch of his Long March 5 rocket.
China's most recent mission is the closing of NASS's spacecraft InSight from NASA on Mars on Monday, with less than 400 miles (640 kilometers) of the US rover-peculiarity, the only other working robot in Mars.
