Trust in vaccines vital to halting pandemic: WHO

  Trust in vaccines vital to halting pandemic: WHO Trust in vaccines vital to halting pandemic: WHOAn intense race is on since the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic to find a vaccine to combat the coronavirus. A number of institutes and healthcare companies around the world are conducting tests faster than usual so as to bring a vaccine into the market by the end of 2020 or the first half of 2021. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a vaccine will be considered effective only if it is able to protect at least 50 percent of those vaccinated.

A Long March 5 rocket took off from China on Monday evening, November 23, to send a probe to search for pieces of the moon ... This is the first time in 40 years that an agency has attempted to achieve this feat. Once again, China could assert its power in the space sector.

China has launched a lander towards the Moon in an attempt to bring samples back to Earth . This is the first time in 40 years that a space agency has attempted to achieve this feat.

This probe is intended to collect lunar rocks.

  China seeks to retrieve first Moon rocks since 70s The Chang'e-5 probe is hoping to assist in better understanding the Moon's origin and formation.It is hoped the unmanned Chang'e-5 probe, to be launched on Tuesday, will bring back samples to help understand the Moon's origin and formation.

China successfully launched the Chang'e-3 lunar probe early Monday morning from Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China 's Sichuan Province, the

The probe ’s descent will be aided by a communications relay satellite, the Queqiao, which China deployed back in May. If the landing is successful China will enter the history books and proceed to explore the composition of an unexplored region of the moon to learn more about its formation and

The "Long March 5" rocket took off at 4:30 a.m. Beijing time (9:30 p.m. Monday French time) from the Wenchang Space Center on Hainan Island in the south of the country.

As usual, the Chinese state is relatively discreet about its space missions. The national channel CCTV however broadcast the launch live:

This Chang'e 5 mission constitutes the new stage of the ambitious Chinese space program, which had struck a big blow in early 2019 by landing a machine on the hidden face of the Moon , a world first. To collect lunar dust and rocks, the probe will dig the ground to a depth of two meters, before returning them to Earth.

First attempt since 1976

These samples could then help scientists better understand the history of the Moon. This is the first attempt to bring back lunar rocks since the uninhabited Luna 24 mission, successfully carried out by the former USSR in 1976.

China has launched its ambitious mission to the moon . China has launched its ambitious mission to the moon . The Chang'e 5 probe is expected to bring back two kilos of rocks and soil to help scientists learn more about Earth's nearest neighbor.

The Chinese probe had been circling the moon in an elliptical orbit in preparation for landing since Sunday. The mission left Xichang Satellite Launch Center on China is a relative newcomer to space travel compared to the US and Russia, but has been making up for lost time at a rapid rate.

The Chinese probe is expected to land on the star in late November. The return of the samples to Earth should take place around early or mid-December.

Chang’e is the name of a moon goddess in Chinese mythology. This is not the first time that China has launched a device towards the moon. It has already landed two small unmanned robots (the "Jade Rabbits") on the lunar soil during the Chang’e 3 (in 2013) and Chang’e 4 (started in 2018) missions.

The Asian giant is investing billions of euros in its space program to catch up with Europe, Russia and the United States.

He sent his first astronaut into space in 2003, hopes to assemble a large space station by 2022 and intends to send men to the moon within ten years.

China lands on moon in mission to collect samples from surface .
If the Chang’e-5 mission is successful, China will become third country after US and Russia to collect lunar material.The space agency said the probe had successfully landed on the near side of the moon and sent back images.
