A Chinese spacecraft about to return to Earth with the rocks of the moon for the first time in 45 years



If the mission succeeds, China will become the third country after the United States and the former Soviet Union to carry the rocks of the moon to Earth.

According to Chinese media reports referring to the Spanish National Administration of China, a container weighing two kilos of rocks was taken to the module.

A capsule carrying rock samples is expected to land in the Inner Mongolia region in the middle of this month.

These will be the first samples of the moon obtained by scientists since they made the Luna 24 probes from the Soviet Union in 1976.
