China's spacecraft returned to Earth after taking samples from the lunar surface

The Chandrayaan 'Chang E-5' of Beijing, China, has successfully returned to Earth after taking samples from the lunar surface. Samples have been brought to Earth more than 40 years after the moon.

According to the China National Space Administration (CNSA), 'Chang E-5' landed in the Sijiwang banner of Mongolia Autonomous Region at one o'clock in the wee hours of local time (on Wednesday). CNSA chief Zhang Keijn has declared the 'Chang E-5' campaign successful.

According to China's government news agency Xinhua, China's current three-phase lunar exploration program of orbiting, landing, and retrieving samples has successfully ended. It had happened in the year 2004. Two of the four modules of 'Chang E-5' reached the lunar surface on December 1, and they excavated and collected nearly two kilograms of samples.
