China's Chang'e-6 Lunar Probe Returns with Historic Samples from Moon's Far Side



China's Chang'e-6 lunar probe has successfully retu ed to Earth with the first-ever samples from the Moon's far side.

After a nearly two-month mission, the probe landed in the Inner Mongolia desert.

This mission marks a significant achievement, as the far side of the Moon is challenging to reach due to its distance and rough terrain. The samples could provide valuable insights into planetary formation and the presence of ice, which is vital for future lunar resource utilization.

China previously landed on the Moon's far side in 2019 and continues to advance its lunar exploration efforts, ga ering attention from rival nations like the US. The successful retu of Chang'e-6 has been celebrated in China.
