China Lands On Moon To Collect Rock Samples


Once again the moon is visited by a robotic craft from the same country. This time it is to collect rock samples to take back to the orbiting mother ship. Then eventually back to earth. What is so exciting is it has landed on a previously never visited part of the moon. It is scheduled to spend a couple of days there. While people on earth at mission control operate the robotics to collect the required samples. It is the first such mission for half a century. It places the country concerned among an elite group now numbering three. To have ever achieved such a feat. If everything goes well and the samples are back on earth safely. There is no doubt that more missions like this will be undertaken.

Anthony is an Astronomy Editor for Jupiter Today. And yes, he gets horoscope charts requests all the time. Anthony became fascinated with Space ever since he read about the “Wow!” signal back in the second grade. Everything escalated in the most classic way: telescopes in the attic, collection of Space atlases, the astronomy club presidency in school and finally — a degree in Cosmology from Lancaster University. During his residency in Lancaster, UK Anthony would spend approximately 300 days a year traveling, attending conferences, and interviewing the world’s finest astrophysicists for American Constellation, Simply Science, Magellan Bulletin, and GEO Today. Anthony also absolutely loves the “Oh, you know Astronomy? Make me a horoscope chart!” request. It’s a classic.
