November 24, China successfully launched the Luna Exploration Project Di’e V probe with the Long March 5 Yao-5 carrier rocket at China’s Wenchang Space Launch Site. It officially launched China’s first return journey of extraterrestrial object sampling. Subsequently, the European Space Agency (ESA) congratulated China on its official Twitter.
The European Space Agency said: “China’s ‘Evous V probe has set out for the moon. The European Space Agency will use the Kuru Space Launch Center (located in South America) to transmit signals to help the ‘Evous V probe reach its destination smoothly. Wish the mission success! See you on the way home!”
Shortly before the launch of the ‘Ev5 probe, the European Space Agency also tweeted: “Today is the long-awaited day! China’s ‘E5 probe is about to be launched and will make a soft landing on the far side of the moon in a few days. “No human has brought back samples from the Moon since 1975, and we are pleased to support this exciting mission through the ESA Tracking Station Network (ESTRACK).”
