First Samples from the Moon’s Far Side in Human Hands

For the first time, samples from the far side of the Moon, which is never visible from Earth, have been brought back to our planet.

The Chang’e 6 spacecraft’s return module landed in Inner Mongolia, China, after a 53-day mission, carrying approximately 2 kg of lunar rocks. This marks a significant milestone in space exploration as it is the first time humans have obtained samples from this hidden part of the Moon.

This mission is part of China’s ambitious lunar exploration program, which aims to gather more information about the Moon’s composition and history. The success of Chang’e 6 highlights China’s growing capabilities in space exploration and their commitment to advancing scientific knowledge.
