Explanation: This Long March-5 rocket blasted off from the Wenchang launch site in southernmost Hainan province on Tuesday November 24, at 4:30 am Beijing Time, carrying China’s Chang’e-5 mission to the Moon. The lunar landing mission is named for the ancient Chinese goddess of the moon. Its goal is to collect about 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds) of lunar material from the surface and return it to planet Earth, the first robotic sample return mission to the Moon since the Soviet Union’s Luna 24 mission in 1976. The complex Chang’e-5 mission landing target is in the Oceanus Procellarum (Ocean of Storms). The smooth volcanic plain was also visited by the Apollo 12 mission in 1969. Chang’e-5’s lander is solar-powered and scheduled to operate on the lunar surface during its location’s lunar daylight, which will last about two Earth weeks, beginning around November 27. A capsule with the lunar sample on board would return to Earth in mid-December.

说明: 在北京时间11月24日星期二早晨4:30分,这艘长征五号运载火箭从海南省最南端的文昌航天发射场出发,推送中国的嫦娥五号探测器前往月球。这项登月任务,很贴切的是以中国的月亮女神嫦娥为名。任务的目标是要收集约2公斤的月面物质,并将之送返地球,这也是自1976年前苏联的月球24号任务后,首次的月面样品回送任务。多目标的嫦娥五号任务之著陆点,在风暴洋的平滑火山平原之内,1969年的阿波罗12号也是降落于此平原。由太阳能板供电的嫦娥五号着陆器,预定从11月27日起,将在登月点的白昼运转2星期。回送月球样器的返回器,则将在12月中回到地球。
