China will continue its space mission by launching three lunar probes, the Chang’e-6, -7 and -8 within a decade. The missions will bring lunar samples back to Earth, detect water signals on the moon’s south pole and explore resources at the pole, the China National Space Administration (CNSA) revealed at the end of 2021. The three missions will raise the curtain on China’s first crewed lunar landing before 2030 and contribute to building the manned International Lunar Research Station on the moon. It will be open to all international partners interested in cooperation. The CNSA will also explore more about Earth-approaching asteroids, comets of the asteroid belt, the Jovian system and interplanetary space.
