China to explore the dark side of the moon

    Two years after making its first soft landing on the moon, China has started a new round of work focused on lunar exploration. The country is going to land an unmanned (无人操控的) spacecraft on the dark side of the moon. The plan will be carried out in two years’ time at most.
    The moon’s dark side is never directly visible from the Earth. Although previous spacecraft have taken pictures of the dark side, none have landed on it. The new exploration will be the first time for human beings to land a spacecraft on the unexplored side. It will also mark another milestone in China’s ambitious space program.
    The exploration will be conducted by the new Chang’e-4 spacecraft. The spacecraft will make a soft landing on the dark side of the moon. Experts say the landing will be challenging. The dark side contains the biggest hole in the solar system, which is about 2,500 km wide and 13 km deep.
    The ability to explore the space is often seen as a marker (标志) of a country’s national strength and global status. In the past decades, China has spent a lot of money and energy on space programs. However, the country has mostly repeated what the United States and Russia pioneered decades ago.
    “The Chang’e-4 mission will be different,” said Liu Jizhong, China’s lunar exploration chief. “It will help our country make the leap (跳越) from following to leading in the field of lunar exploration.”
