China’s space mission
The landing of the Chinese spacecraft marked the successful conclusion of the 23-day space mission, in which Robert was seen landing on the moon and then collecting rock samples before returning.
With the successful completion of this mission, China has become the third country in the world, after the United States and the former Soviet Union, to have a space mission return to Earth by collecting material samples from the surface of the moon. China has plans for several space missions, including a space mission to Mars and a mission to bring astronauts to the moon half a century later.
China spends billions of dollars under its military command to expand its space programmed and aims to build a space station for astronauts by 2012. Chinese explorers likewise wish to walk on the moon. China aspires to be the world’s largest space power and has reached another milestone.
