After travelling around the orbit of moon, the unmanned probe of China returned to earth successfully. Yesterday after the arrival of this probe China’s standing in the account of interstellar supremacy will quite powerful which is beyond any doubt. Chang’e 5-T1 is the official name of the probe, which reached the atmosphere of earth on Saturday at 6.13am. In Inner Mongolia, it surfaced after which a record got set. The record is that practically in 40 years of space status a spacecraft has come back to the atmosphere of earth after traveling around moon for the first time.
A spacecraft named “Xiaofei” circumnavigated at a speed of approximately 25,000mph at a distance of 250,000 miles from the earth at its extreme point. Next idea of China is to direct another probe to the moon which will probably set up in 2017 and launch to moon. The purpose of this mission will be to bring together samples of soil from moon. China would turn out to be the third nation state after United States and Russia, if that mission gets accomplished. It will be definitely a great achievement for China, strengthening the space prominence worldwide.
In the subject of space exploration, the eastern countries has already established remarkable missions and accomplishment. Yet again, two probes never returned in previous attempts. In spite of several failures, there are further strategies of crewed astronomical missions waiting ahead. In one of the previous missions, the “Jade Rabbit” successfully reached on the one and only natural satellite of earth in January this year, but got failed to complete the mission due to some breakdown reasons. Also Beijing has become the third independent nation to send its first astronaut successfully in 2003.
