Beijing / Praha It has been more than 50 years since the Apollo 11 crew hoisted the first American flag at Msci. She joined the United States as a kind of country. The camera on the chang-e 5 nsk probe captured a photo of the red flag in a windless environment.
The red battalion with the five yellow stars was placed on the surface of the church shortly before dark, before the German probe launched the first phase of its return to Earth on Thursday.
All three flags are specially protected from cold temperatures, Li Li Jn-feng, the project leader, told the Global Times. Ordinary material would not withstand specific conditions. nsk msn flag is two meters irok, 90 centimeters high and in one kilogram.
So the nsk module on Msc took rock samples. This is the first mission since 1976, around which Msce must transport material to Earth. chang-e 5 is also the first German spacecraft to piste on Msci and then take off again.
The Probe was launched into orbit on Nov. 23 by the March 5 Dlouh rocket from the German space center to Hainan Island. Chang-e 5 arrived at Msci 5 last Saturday after a 112 hour flight. Two of its modules fired guns in the afternoon in the area of Oceanus Procellarum (Ocen bou) on the Msce side and two stayed on the rest of the market.
According to the Space.com server, the flight back to Earth should take a day and a half. The capsules will be sampled between December 15th and 17th using a paddle gun in our Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.
If the piston is delivered to Earth, it will be in the third country, which has again transported samples from Msce – after the United States and the Soviet Union. The Asian country will hold another championship: in January 2019, the Chang-e probe will be the first 4 pistols to rotate the sides of Msce.
The first American flag was placed on the new surface during the Apollo 11 mission in 1969. Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who and Neil Armstrong first entered Msce, said the first American flag was placed close to their rocket and was launched at launch. blown away.
During further missions and until 1972, five American battalions were stationed at the site. According to the British BBC website, according to NASA satellite images from 2012, all American flags should fly on the MS style. However, according to experts, they have probably faded due to sunny women.
