>>> is not a manned mission , china is going to the moon. they blasted off a rocket this morning. they plan to set down a lunar rover as a precursor to their own manned mission . nothing made this kind of soft landing on the moon since a russian craft back in 1976 after the u.s. apollo missions had concluded.
