China plans to build the Xinhua research station on the moon for about "about 10 years," according to a new state-owned agency Xinhua.
The Chinese National Space Administration (CSNA) has invented the South Pole Research Station on the Moon, Zhang Kejian, the head of the CSNA, said Xinhua reported. This is a bit of a departure from the successful Apollo moon NASA six landings, the moon's equator was closer between 1969 and 1972.
China's long-term moonlight plans are still exciting, but the CSNA has made significant strides for moon exploration. This year, the Chinese landed on the other side of the Moon with the unchanged Chang & # 39; e-4 and the astronauts were shiped to Tiangong-1 and Tiangong-2 at two station stations. Their space agency will also launch a larger and more permanent station in the next few years in orbit.

The first part of the Sustainable Stations will arrive in the first half of 2020 in the Long March 5B rocket-line orbit. Agence France-Presse (AFP) has reported; The mission will not be linked to an international space station. ISS is coming to an end of its operational life, as well as the United States and China do not work for space flights.
Kejian also announced that Chang's # 5, a moonless slider launched in 2017, is trying to get back to the moon and try to return samples in 2019, Xinhua said.
AFP says that today, China, except US, is spending more space in any country than in other countries. At this time, the US can not put humans into space without going on a rocket rocket; The plan that is intended to change those models that have previously been used by SpaceX has received some penalties. However, American officials must return to their lunar and long-term plans to stay in the near future.
