*China Mission To Moon Returns To Earth

China’s chang’E-5 mission has returned to earth with the cargo of rock and “soil” it picked up off the Moon.

A capsule carrying the materials landed in Inner Mongolia shortly after 01:30 local time on Thursday.

It’s more than 40 years since the American Apollo and Soviet Luna missions brought their samples home.

The new specimens should provide fresh insight on the geology and early history of earth’s satellite. For China, the successful completion of the Chang’E-5 venture will also be seen as another demonstration of the nation’s increasing capability in space
