Moon samples weighing 1,731 grams donated for research-

Moon samples weighing 1,731 grams were presented for study at a Saturday morning reception.

China will invite more scientists around the world to engage in lunar research in an effort to achieve more scientific results, according to an official from China’s National Space Administration.

China will seek cooperation proposals broadly in line with the rules on the management of lunar samples and data, Wu Yanhua, CNSA’s deputy administrator, said Thursday at a news conference in Beijing.

In the Chang’e-5 mission, China coordinated and cooperated with countries and international organizations, including the European Space Agency, Argentina, Namibia, and Pakistan, in space exploration and control, Wu added.

Wu said China would implement several space missions, including Chang’e 6, Chang’e 7, Chang’e 8, asteroid exploration, Mars sampling returns, and future Jupiter missions.

“China is willing to cooperate with relevant countries and international organizations to lay out the basic capabilities for building a lunar research station first and test key technologies,” Wu said.

Xu Hongliang, a spokesman from the CNSA, said that scientists in many countries expressed their willingness to conduct a lunar study together because the samples brought back by Chang’e 5 were the best lunar samples. soil in the world in 44 years.

“We warmly welcome that,” said Xu, adding that the CNSA has signed more than 140 co-operation agreements with more than 40 countries, and is actively involved in the work of 18 organizations between -national.

“Moon samples are the wealth of humanity, and we are willing to cooperate with our international peers on the basis of equality and mutual benefit,” Xu said.

Xu also noted that lunar sampling and data sharing regulation should follow relevant UN treaties and rules, as well as Chinese rules.

“The CNSA specifically outlines administrative measures and follow-up policies for lunar samples,” Xu said.

“We will test plans for lunar sample analyzes, and invite scientists from home and abroad to select plans, conduct research together, and share some of the achievements,” Xu said.
