Chang'e-7 will conduct comprehensive exploration of the South Pole, including its land forms, material composition, and environment.

The Chang'e 4 probe which is named after the Chinese moon goddess made the world's first soft landing on the moon on January 3.

"This (mission) has achieved the first biological experiment on the moon of human history, to sprout the first bud on the desolate moon. It's not something any one country should try to retain for itself".

"Although it is a biological payload for popularising science, it laid a foundation and technological support for our next step, that is, to build a lunar base for living", Xie said. "China will carry out its first-ever exploration mission to Mars around 2020", Wu told the reporters on Monday. Among the images are a panoramic view of the lunar terrain, a snapshot of the Yutu 2 rover, and a sped-up video from the craft's descent camera showing its landing.

Head of the experiment, Liu Hanlong, said that rapeseed and potato seeds had also sprouted aboard Chang'e-4.

The Stats From Kiko Casilla's Time At Real Madrid Are Absolutely Mad
At the end of the 2014/15 La Liga campaign, Casilla was re-signed by Real Madrid , eight years after leaving for Espanyol . Bielsa was in the market for a second goalkeeper after losing Chelsea loanee Jamal Blackman to a broken leg in November.

They hope Chang'e 5 will be launched this year tasked with bringing the first moon samples back to earth since the 1970s.

The future launches will culminate with a mission to test equipment for an global moon research base, Wu Yanhua, deputy chief commander of China's Lunar Exploration Programme, said at a press briefing. The second, Wu said, is primarily about the space environment around the moon, including the impact of cosmic radiation, solar radiation and solar eruptions on the lunar space. In the coming months, Chang'e 4 will continue to carry out scientific observations across the less understood side of the moon. The rover will be reactivated after 14 days when the moon's far side enters daytime.

That claim could not be immediately substantiated, but it could raise eyebrows on Capitol Hill because NASA and the Chinese agency are prohibited from cooperating without congressional approval, the report said. It is expected to begin its operations in 2022, however, the space agency is still deciding whether to send astronauts to the moon.

The successful launch of Chang E-4 is considered to be a long jump in China towards astronomical observation and has given considerable strength to its ambitions towards becoming a space superpower.
