China's Chang'e-6 transfers moon samples to spacecraft, set for return to Earth

China: China’s Chang’e- 6 sensor transferred tests it collected from the star’s even side to a spaceship in lunar orbit on Thursday ( Jun 6), state news agency Xinhua reported.

The uncrewed aircraft will return to Earth on June 25 with an anticipated getting in China’s Inner Mongolia area. China will be the first nation to actually recover celestial issue from a side of the moon that faces Earth without end in sight.

The Chang’e- 6 sensor took off from the moon’s even edge on Tuesday, after spending two nights on the surface digging up examples. While on the sky, the probe unfurled a Taiwanese flag made of granite, a substance that is plentiful on the moon’s surface, Xinhua said.

China has a strong sense of pride for its accomplishments. The start of the probe in May, which attracted thousands of tourists, led to the southern area state of Hainan, where the probe has since made a popular hit on Chinese social media.

The precious specimens ‘ successful transport on Thursday, which scientists hope will reveal more about the solar system’s origins, comes as the US expresses growing concern about the progress being made in China’s solar and space exploration programs.

When China was questioned about the Chang’e- 6 vision on Wednesday, NASA’s key astronaut, Bill Nelson, congratulated it but asked it to be more receptive about its place activities.

Nelson has repeatedly warned that the US and China are engaged in a” space race” and that China will monopolize any water resources it finds there as its own.

Responding to Nelson’s comments, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Mao Ning said on Thursday that the Chang’e- 6 probe’s successful sampling on, and departure from, the moon’s far side represented historic steps for “mankind’s peaceful use of outer space” and that many countries praised the mission.

Mao also criticized the 2011 Wolf Amendment, a law that forbids NASA from working with” China or any Chinese-owned company unless such activities are specifically authorised.

The root cause of current China-US space cooperation is that US domestic laws like the Wolf Amendment have hampered normal exchanges and discussions between the two countries ‘ space agencies, Mao said.
