China is ready to send out Chang'e-6 robotic spacecraft

New stage in lunar exploration

The spacecraft "Chang'e-6" is scheduled to launch at an appropriate moment in early May. The China National Space Administration (CNSA) released a statement.

The Chang'e-6 lunar probe and the Long March-5 Y8 launch vehicle were reportedly delivered in a vertical configuration to the Wenchang Space Launch Center in Hainan Province, according to CNSA.

The mobile launch platform with the aforementioned configuration was securely transported to the launch area on April 27 after leaving the spaceport's vertical test shop. This was reported by Xinhua News Agency, a partner of TV BRICS.

Functional control, joint testing, and launch vehicle fuelling will all be done prior to liftoff. Assembling, testing, and other preliminary work have been finished one after the other since the Chang'e-6 lunar probe and the Long March-5 Y8 launch vehicle were transported to the spaceport in January and March.

The Chang'e-6 lunar probe mission is the first of its kind in human history and is tasked with gathering samples from the lunar surface.

According to the source, engineers will carry out the rocket's last functional tests and fuel injection in the next days.

If all goes as planned, Chang'e-6 will reach the lunar trajectory, execute a number of flights manoeuvres, and ultimately land in the South Pole-Eitken basin on the lunar surface. Providing everything proceeds as expected, after entering the lunar trajectory, Chang'e-6 will perform a series of flight manoeuvres and finally land in the South Pole–Aitken basin on the moon's back side.
