December 1, the ‘e 5 probe successfully landed in the pre-selected landing area on the front of the moon, becoming the third probe in China to successfully implement a soft landing on the lunar surface.
After the successful setting of the moon on the E-E5, the Russian Space Agency congratulated China on this feat.
According to a Tass news agency, on December 1 local time, Sergei Savariev, deputy director of the Russian Federal Space Agency for international cooperation, said that the Russian Federal Space Agency congratulated the successful landing of the lunar probe.
“China’s National Space Administration has completed the moon setting link in a lunar probe sampling and return mission, which is a truly historic event in China’s space industry and the first time in the history of China’s space exploration.” He also wished the E-V probe to successfully bring lunar soil samples back to Earth and successfully complete China’s scientific project. He also said that lunar research remains a priority in all national space programs, and Russia and China regularly discuss development cooperation in this field.
On the evening of December 1st local time, the European Space Agency shared on social media the news that the E-E5 probe had successfully landed in the pre-selected landing area on the front of the moon, and congratulated the Chinese National Space Administration. ESA also said that through its global tracking station network, ESA has provided technical support for the ‘E5 probe.
After the launch of ‘O 5, ESA’s Kuru ground station in French Guiana tracked it for several hours. When the ‘Ev5 returns to Earth, ESA will receive signals through the Maspalomas ground station in Spain.
In addition, Dr Thomas Zurbuchen, the highest-ranking scientific officer of the National Space Administration (NASA), also congratulated the successful landing of the Moon on the overseas social media platform. He said that this was not easy, and when the samples collected from the moon were sent back to Earth, he hoped that everyone would benefit from the research on this valuable cargo that could promote the progress of the international scientific community. On the day of the successful launch of the ‘e-5, Zurbuqin also tweeted to congratulate China.
It is reported that the landing area of the E-E5 mission to set the moon has been selected near the Lumke Mountains in the northern part of the Storm Ocean, the largest lunar sea on the moon. The reason why scientists chose to land and carry out sampling in this area is that compared with the previously sampled moon in the United States and the former Soviet Union, there may be relatively young basalt geologically. If new samples can be obtained here, it will help to advance the lunar volcanic activity and evolutionary calendar. The understanding of history.
