|The Chinese Chang’e 1 lunar orbiting mission is scheduled to launch on 24 October.
Chang’e 1 is planned to be the first of a series of Chinese missions to the Moon. The spacecraft is scheduled to launch on 24 October 2007 at 10:05 UT (18:05 Chinese Standard Time) on a CZ-3A (Long March 3A) booster from Xichang Satellite Launch Center. Chang’e will orbit the Moon for a year to test the technology for future missions and to study the lunar environment and surface regolith. The primary engineering objectives of the mission are to validate the technology necessary to fly lunar missions. The primary science objectives are to obtain three-dimensional stereo images of the lunar surface, determine the distribution of some useful elements on the surface and estimate their abundance, survey the thickness of lunar soil and to evaluate helium-3 resources, and to explore the environment between the Moon and Earth.Chang’e 1 at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center.
