Space Fantasy #66: Beijing readies dark side of the Moon mission...


CHINA GOING TO DARK SIDE OF THE MOON IN MYSTERIOUS MISSION 

China is heading to the dark side of the Moon, in a journey no spacecraft has ever made before.  The Chang’e-4 mission will help illuminate some of the most shadowy secrets of our nearby neighbour, after landing on the far side of the world.  No spacecraft has made such a journey onto the distant part of the Moon. Doing so is difficult because it means venturing to a part of the Moon that is largely unknown to us, since we can never see its far side from Earth. As well as the audacious landing on the planet, it will carry a range of scientific experiments. Perhaps most intriguingly of them all is a big container that includes seeds and insect eggs and hence create living things that will have been born on the Moon. The country’s space agency will blast off in just a few days, after a series of successful tests. It sets off Saturday, 8 December, and is expected to drop onto the Moon early next year. It will head up towards the Moon, fly around it and then drop down, into a specially selected region of the Moon that will become its home. Source

An All Nippon Airways plane from western Japan bound for Tokyo’s Haneda Airport had to turn back to Fukuoka Airport for an emergency landing. Fukuoka Airport officials say crew on board the Boeing 767 reported engine trouble shortly after 9:50 a.m. Thursday Japan time.

All Nippon Airways says the aircraft’s cockpit indicators showed a temperature surge in the right engine, as the plane was ascending after takeoff. The pilots shut down the engine and headed back to Fukuoka.
