When is the Chinese spacecraft going to land on the moon?

Because pryuen will be having a hotpot dinner in his internet cafe while watching all this happening.

even though you are trolling pryuen

if you are interested

It has already it's attempted landing

How come pryuen has not reported on the landing yet?

China makes history as the first to land a spacecraft on the far side of the moon ... -moon.html

Congrats to China on its space program

Why China’s spectacular moon landing is so significant

By Michael Guillen, Ph.D. | Fox News

China’s Chang’e 4’s unprecedented moon landing on Wednesday is more than a stunning technical achievement. It represents an historic declaration of independence more far-reaching than the American Revolution’s “shot heard round the world.”

By itself, Chang’e 4 (pronounced Chong-guh) is nothing special. It’s a typical, desk-sized lunar lander toting cameras, scientific experiments, and a sprightly, six-wheeled rover named Yutu. But by landing on the far side of the moon, Chang’e 4 has gone where no lunar lander has ever been before – and is, therefore, poised to reveal things about the moon we’ve never seen before.

Like water.

We have compelling, indirect evidence that ice lays hidden in the shadows of the moon’s polar craters – especially the south pole region, which is precisely where Chang’e 4 and Yutu now are. If the spacecraft are able to confirm the evidence, humanity’s plans to colonize the moon will become all the more realistic. It’ll become possible to mine the ice for drinking water, energy, and even rocket fuel to launch ourselves to Mars and beyond.

To that rousing end, Chang’e 4 is carrying a small biosphere inhabited by six symbiotic life forms: cotton, rapeseed, potato, fruit fly, yeast and rockcress, a plant related to cabbage and radish that stands to produce the first flower on the moon. More than a gimmick, the biosphere – if it survives – will further boost our chances of colonizing the moon by the late 2020s or early 2030s.

What’s more, Chang’e 4’s exploration of the far side of moon could cough up clues about how the moon came to be – amazingly, a simple question we still can’t answer. Was the moon a free-flying object that Earth’s pull captured billions of years ago? Or is it a massive piece of shrapnel resulting from a head-on collision between Earth and something else?

In addition to all that, Chang’e 4’s political implications are astronomical. Just as Sputnik’s surprise launch in 1957 triggered worldwide suspicion about the Soviet Union’s true intentions, so Chang’e 4’s surprise success has everyone in today’s tense world wondering what the Chinese are up to.

The development is especially shocking because China’s space program seems to have come out of nowhere. And in some sense it has. Whereas NASA was formed in 1958, the China National Space Administration (CNSA) was founded in 1993.

During the past quarter-century, however, CNSA has made up for lost time – illustrating in classic, tortoise-versus-hare fashion that slow and steady wins the race. Today, despite its belated start, CNSA boasts a robust astronaut (taikonaut) program, an operational space station (Tiangong-2), and a whopping thirty-eight rocket launches in 2018 – more than any other country.

Even though it’s generally quite secretive, CNSA is very open about its intention to land taikonauts on the moon by the late 2020s or early 2030s, with an eye to colonizing the moon shortly thereafter. The United States and Russia have made similar declarations. But all things considered – especially now, in the wake of Chang’e 4’s spectacular success – China must be considered the frontrunner.

As a scientist, I’m excited for China’s rise to prominence – the more bold, active space explorers, the better. But as a Baby Boomer who grew up during NASA’s glory days, I’m dismayed we’ve blown our lead, to the point that our astronauts are now reduced to hitching rides aboard Russian rockets, for a lack of our own.

Above all, I’m a realist who recognizes there will never be another space race like the one that defined my childhood. When – like a shot heard round the solar system – Chang’e 4 touched down on entirely unexplored territory, humanity officially entered an entirely new era of space exploration. One that is multi-fronted and far more thrilling than the old space race.

I say that because today there are many more credible participants: not just countries, including China, but corporations and wealthy individuals. And many more exciting goals within our reach: colonizing the moon, mining asteroids, landing a person on Mars, sailing to the stars. Lofty, dreamlike goals that more than ever before loudly declare our species’ independence from the shackles of Earth’s gravity.

moon landing on far side isn't significant technologically, scientifically, logistically, creatively, or socially

however it goes to show that these mid-level scientific nations like China and India. maybe Brazil or Nigeria someday continue to invest in landing on the Moon. which in and of itself is important. and investment in space exploration may at some point lead to an actually significant engineering or scientific breakthrough

a permanent establishment on the Moon will not happen though. for the same reason we have satellites and probes.

for example if we want to see into the past history of the Universe, we don't put guys in orbit to peer out little portholes. we'll send a billion dollar satellite with a huge lens out in geosynchronous orbit to take 100000x the pictures and astronaut could.

likewise there's no need to actually visit the rings of Saturn or moons of Jupiter. computer driven data collection is far superior to what a human being could collect. and human being add little to nothing.

the Chinese perhaps will put a guy on the Moon for several months but even that is unlikely. essentially the Chinese Moon program is for bragging rights and local consumption but even for the CCP the potential claimed yields are niggardly compared to the costs and logistics. they're not really going out there for the love of Science. they do it so they can claim something. there's very little to claim on the Moon, it's like being the 15th guy to claim he banged butters' mom. the first guy didn't even have much to brag about let alone the dude who comes along 50 years later
