Chinese Spacecraft Returns after Circling the Moon

China successfully launched a spacecraft that traveled to and orbited the moon and then returned to Earth. This is the first step of China’s plans to put a man on the moon. The second phase of the plan has China sending another rocket to the moon, landing to collect soil samples and then return.

China has also hinted at a possible crewed mission to the moon at a future date if officials decide to combine the human spaceflight and lunar exploration programs.
