Previously, China made history when it succeeded in landing the Chang'e 4 mission to the farthest side of the Moon. After hours of landing, the exploration engine succeeded in sending a photograph of the surface of the moon that had never been explored for the first time to earth. But, the mission landing on Von Karman's crater was only the beginning.

Baohua Yang, CASC Vice President said they will launch a major mission in July. The company will launch a carrier rocket called the Long March 5, as reported by Xinhua, on Friday, February 2nd 2019. This rocket is in the development stage.

This rocket is planned to carry the Moon exploratory instrument that will bring the Moon's surface sample back to Earth. This explorer will be a little more complicated than the previous Moon explorer. The Moon Samples they carry will be placed in containers and taken to the laboratory for analysis and research.
