    "China issues document to boost global cooperation on lunar samples"

    http://www.ecns.cn/news/2021-01-18/d...e1836075.shtml

    China published its Regulations on the Management of Lunar Samples on Monday morning, aiming to improve scientific research and international cooperation.

    Developed by the China National Space Administration, the document has nine chapters and 37 clauses, governing the storage, management and use of lunar samples brought back by the country's Chang'e 5 mission.

    According to the regulations, the samples will be divided into four categories -- permanent storage, backup storage, research, and public-interest purposes.

    "China is working on a lander for human moon missions"

    https://spacenews.com/china-is-worki...moon-missions/

    China’s main spacecraft maker is developing a human landing system for lunar missions, according to an account of an official academic visit.

    The brief news report from Xiamen University School of Aeronautics and Astronautics July 1 (Chinese) names individuals leading projects pertinent to China’s human lunar landing plans and notably refers to the landing project as a “national strategy”.

    China is already known to be developing and testing new launch vehicles and a new-generation spacecraft capable of sending astronauts to the moon. A lunar landing and ascent system has one of the missing key components of a human lunar landing architecture.

    The report names Yang Lei as “chief commander of the crewed lunar landing vehicle system” at the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST), a subordinate to the state-owned space and defense contractor China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp. (CASC).

    "China eyes manned lunar landing by 2030: Long March designer"

    https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202108/1232862.shtml

    Leading Chinese rocket scientist Long Lehao has recently unveiled the country's ambitious manned lunar landing plan, which is expected to be carried out with two rocket launches by sending two taikonauts to the moon by around 2030. Long's comment offers a more detailed picture of the country's major breakthrough in space exploration.

    Long, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and chief designer of Long March rockets, made the remarks at the 35th China Adolescents Science and Technology Innovation Contest, and a video of his speech went viral on social media late on Sunday night.

    China is planning to use new variants of the Long March-5 launch vehicle - the strongest member of the Long March rocket family - to carry out the manned space launch missions, according to a slide Long used during his speech.

    "China displays crewed moon landing mission elements"

    https://spacenews.com/china-displays...sion-elements/

    China is showcasing a number of elements for future human lunar landing missions at a major airshow and stating that super heavy-lift rocket will be ready by 2028.

    Two super heavy-lift rockets, the return capsule from a prototype new-generation crew spacecraft, its parachutes and a Chang’e-5 spacecraft are on display at the 13th Zhuhai Airshow, which runs Sept. 28–Oct. 3.

    The in-development launchers and crew spacecraft could provide China with the capabilities to land astronauts on the moon by around 2030. Beyond this the largest rocket would also be able to deliver architecture to the lunar surface for long-term stays.
