A year ago, it dispatched its Tianwen-1 test to Mars that is at present circling the Red Planet.
What’s more, in December, it effectively brought rock and soil tests from the Moon back to Earth, the first mission of this kind in more than 40 years.
Chen Lan, an autonomous examiner gaining practical experience in China’s space program, said the joint lunar space station was “serious”.
“This will be the biggest worldwide space participation project for China, so it’s huge,” Lan told AFP.
Roscosmos boss Dmitry Rogozin composed on Twitter that he had welcomed CNSA boss Zhang Kejian to the dispatch of Russia’s first current lunar lander, Luna 25, booked for October 1 – the first lunar lander to be dispatched by Russia since 1976.
