China Successfully Lands Spacecraft on Moon's Far Side for Sample Retrieval

China has successfully landed its Chang'e-6 spacecraft on the far side of the moon, making it the only country to retrieve samples from this region. The mission aims to collect rock and soil samples to understand the differences between the moon’s near and far sides and the formation of the solar system. This landing marks a significant step in China’s ambitious lunar exploration program, which aims to send astronauts to the moon by 2030. The mission comes amid increasing global interest in lunar exploration, with the US also planning a return to the moon with the Artemis program and other countries like Japan and India making progress with their own lunar missions.
