Chinese spacecraft lands on the Moon to bring rocks to Earth
A Chinese spacecraft landed on the Moon to bring lunar rocks to Earth for the first time since the 1970s, the government announced.
The China National Space Administration said Chang’e 5 “successfully landed” at its designated site shortly after 11 pm Tuesday after making a powered descent from its orbiter. He posted footage of the sterile scene at the landing site, including where the lander’s shadow can be seen.
The lander was launched on November 24 from the southern tropical island of Hainan. It is the latest venture in a Chinese space program to send its first astronaut into orbit in 2003, has a spacecraft en route to Mars, and aims to eventually land a human on the Moon.
The plans call for the lander to spend about two days piercing the lunar surface and collecting 2 kilograms of rocks and debris. The sample will be taken into orbit and transferred to a return capsule for the trip to Earth, and will be deposited in the grasslands of Inner Mongolia in the middle of the month.
If successful, it will be the first time scientists have obtained fresh samples of moon rocks from a Soviet probe in the 1970s. Those samples are expected to be available to scientists from other nations, although it is unclear how much access NASA will have. given the strict restrictions of the United States Government on space cooperation with China.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip will spend Christmas in Windsor
Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, will spend Christmas at Windsor Castle instead of going to his Sandringham estate for the first time in decades.
Spokesmen for Buckingham Palace said Tuesday that the queen and her husband may see some of their family briefly, in accordance with the guidelines, but that they are likely to celebrate Christmas alone.
“After considering all the recommendations, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have decided that this year they will spend a quiet Christmas in Windsor,” said a spokeswoman.
It is anticipated that the queen will not go to church on Christmas Day to avoid large crowds.
The royal family spent many Christmases at Windsor Castle when the Queen’s children were young, but since the 1980s they have celebrated Christmas and New Years at the Queen’s country house, Sandringham, in Norfolk, eastern England.
