china mission to mars 2020

China won’t be the first country to retrieve lunar soil samples at the end of 2019 as part of its upcoming Chang’e-5 mission — NASA pulled off that feat in 1969.

But if all goes according to plan, the country could make history with an even more ambitious endeavor, by bringing back samples of Martian soil in 2030.

Mars 2020

China’s space agency renewed its promises to launch future Mars exploration missions — including a mission to the Red Planet as early as next year.

And if the country’s recent space exploration missions are anything to go by, if it might just make it there. China’s National Space Administration successfully landed a spacecraft on the far side of the Moon earlier this year, and even managed to sprout a couple of cotton seeds inside an enclosed container.
