China launched its Changescape 4 landing and navigation system today from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, as part of a mission that hopes to land on the far side of the Moon. Chang's 4 is another of China's Chang's missions and will be the first ship to land on the far side of the Moon. It shows the competitiveness of the country's space program on the international scene.
Since the Moon is the locked locked Earth – its day is the same as its orbit – there is a distant party there that never sees. China has launched its Queqiao Satellite this year to communicate with the landing company and rover.
The mission explores the composition of the largest crater Moon, called the Crater Von Kármán, which is 186 km away. It uses a spectrometer and a radar to characterize the area where it touches.
The remote side of the moon is blocked from Earth's radio noise and can serve as a potential radio binocular location. The mission contains radio spectrometers that characterize this radio wave environment. It also carries seeds as part of the "miniature biosphere" experiment to grow vegetables in lunar soil.
The spacecraft should arrive for 27 days, informs the planetary society.

Chang 4 watches a series of Chinese lunar missions, including two orbits and landing. Shows the sustained success of the country's space program; it was the third state to send people to space, reporting CBS and its own space station.
Chinese scientists and astronauts are excluded from using the International Space Station because the US government refuses to work with China on space efforts.
China plans to launch next year Chang & ee 5, which will send missions from the Moon. Hopefully, by the thirties, I will introduce a man to the moon.
