China’s Chang’e 5 lands on moon to collect fresh samples | Scientific American

China’s Chang’e 5 successfully landed on the moon to collect samples. The lander will spend the next few days collecting about 4.4 lbs. (2 kg) of lunar material, some of it dug from up to 6.5 feet beneath the lunar surface. Pristine lunar samples have not been delivered to Earth since 1976 and this will help scientists understand the moon’s composition and its impact on Earth and the entire solar system.
