    "Lunar samples on display at China's national museum"

    http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/202..._139771806.htm

    Lunar samples brought back by China's Chang'e-5 probe are on public display at the National Museum of China on Saturday.

    The samples, mainly soil from the lunar surface, are preserved in a container made of artificial crystal.

    Designed in the shape of a zun, a traditional Chinese bronze ware, the container is 38.44 cm high and 22.89 cm wide. The height represents the average distance between Earth and the moon of 384,400 km, while the width represents the 22.89 days of the lunar probe's mission.

    Besides the samples, the exhibition also features around 40 objects related to the lunar probe, together with multiple photos and videos.

    "China’s Lunar Samples: Insight into Moon’s History"

    https://www.leonarddavid.com/chinas-...moons-history/

    Lunar samples returned to Earth by China’s Chang’e-5 mission are undergoing intensive study and offer revealing details about the Moon.

    China’s Chang’e-5 (CE-5) mission was the first robotic Earth-Moon round-trip collection of lunar bits and pieces since the Soviet Union’s Luna 24 mission in 1976.

    "China's Chang'e 5 moon landing site finally has a name"

    https://www.space.com/china-chang-e-...ding-site-name

    The landing site for China's complex Chang'e 5 moon sample and return mission now has a name: Statio Tianchuan.

    Statio means a post or station in Latin and is also used in the formal name for NASA's Apollo 11 landing site, Statio Tranquillitatis; and Statio Tianhe, China's Chang’e 4 landing site on the far side of the moon. Tianchuan comes from a Chinese constellation name, which means ship sailing in the Milky Way. Tianchuan consists of nine bright stars in eastern part of the constellation Perseus.

    "First batch of lunar rocks distributed to national scientists"

    http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/a/20210...1bd6612d3.html

    The China National Space Administration distributed the first batch of lunar samples obtained by the Chang'e 5 robotic mission to scientists on Monday.

    The samples, weighing about 17.5 grams, were divided into 21 lots and handed over at a ceremony at the National Astronomical Observatories in Beijing to scientists from 13 domestic research organizations working on 31 scientific projects.

    All of the distributed samples are from the dust and rock fragments retrieved from the lunar surface by the Chang'e 5 lander. Subsurface samples brought back by the historic 23-day expedition are still being processed and analyzed at the National Astronomical Observatories, according to Li Chunlai, deputy chief planner of China's lunar exploration program.

    "Exchange of lunar samples between NASA, China unlikely in near future"

    https://www.moondaily.com/reports/Ex...uture_999.html

    The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is not planning to share its lunar samples with China, although there are no amendments explicitly prohibiting such cooperation, NASA chief scientist Jim Green said.

    "Currently, there's no plans to create a bilateral arrangement with China on the exchange of samples," Green said at a Tuesday meeting of the Lunar Exploration Analysis Group, as quoted by SpaceNews.
