Completes Moon mission

1 Nov, 2014

China completes its first return mission to the moon with the successful re-entry and landing of an unmanned probe in northern China’s Inner Mongolia region. The probe was on an eight-day mission to fly around the moon and head back to Earth. The mission tests technology to be used in the Chang’e-5, China’s fourth lunar probe, which will gather samples from the moon’s surface and will be launched around 2017
