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 National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) commented on the new breakthroughs made by China Aerospace on its official Twitter account.
NASA said that with the launch of the E5, China began to join the ranks of the United States and the former Soviet Union in obtaining lunar samples. We hope that China and the global scientific community will share the data obtained by China’s lunar exploration project to improve our understanding of the moon, just as the Apollo Project of the United States and the Artemis project have done.
According to previous reports, China’s lunar exploration project has been opening the door to cooperation with the whole world. In the previous lunar exploration mission, four scientific payloads developed by scientists from the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden and Saudi Arabia were included.
Before the launch of the U-O-4, the NASA Lunar Exploration Orbiter (LRO) team had close communication with the scientists of the U.S. 4 engineering team to discuss using the LRO satellite operating in lunar orbit by the United States to observe the landing of U.O-4 and carry out scientific research.
To this end, the United States provided the orbital data of the LRO satellite to China, and the Chinese team provided the LRO team with the landing time and landing location.
China’s National Space Administration has also said that it is willing to cooperate with space agencies, space science research institutions and space exploration enthusiasts from various countries to explore the mystery of space.
