China's Lunar Probe Landed on the Moon later last night

15 December 2013

China's lunar probe touched down on the moon

Chang'e 3, China's first lunar probe, successfully landed on the moon at 9.12pm Beijing time on December 14, making China the third country in the world, after Russia and the US, to have climbed onto the celestial lighthouse.

The location in which Lady Chang'e descended is said to be Rainbow Bay, in the northweast of a water-less Sea of Rains.

The bay, covering a vicinity roughly about 300km long and 100km wide, was formed by meteorites strike. It is an area near north point that the mankind knows nothing about so far. Previously, the manned and unmanned landings by both Russians and Americans concentrated on the region along the lunar equator.

Unlike the "blind landings" in the past, the camping site of Chang'e 3 has been well surveyed by Chang'e 2 which helped the probe to touch down smoothly.

It is the first time for a probe to visit the moon since 1976, a year when the Soviet Union launched it's last lunar mission "USSR probe Luna 24" before itself fell flat on the ground after being beaten hollow from inside and outside by its lunar campaign rival, the US; and a year when a palace/military coup master-minded by Deng Xiaoping took place after the death of Chairman Mao and Premier Zhou, followed by Deng becoming the regent of the country.

Chairman Mao once warned his people the danger of seeing China to have its satellites flying onto the sky but its red flag falling in the dirt (卫星上天,红旗落地).

Saidly, it is China's reality now, well, almost.

Will an event occurred in 1976 also revisit China?

天水茫茫: 如果2009年开始就追踪薄在重庆的实践及其意义,就知道,在几乎无可调和的公平和效率之间,在资本主义能发展缺公平和社会主义有公平但缺发展的世纪矛盾、人类疑难之间,如果能实践重庆的经济大发展,又能兼顾公平共富,两者结合起来,那么,这个成功,是世界的,世纪的功劳。
