For the first time in 44 years: lunar soil successfully delivered to Earth

The capsule of the Chinese probe Change 5 has successfully returned to Earth with lunar soil samples.

This was reported by the State Administration of China on Twitter.

“Mission accomplished. The head of China’s National Administration (CNSA) calls the Change-5 lunar mission successful. Ground crews are preparing to transport the lunar assembly capsule to a safe place where it will be opened and examined by specialists,” the message said.

The module landed in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region in the PRC. It is noted that the lunar soil came to our planet for the first time in decades since 1976.
