China conquered the unexplored part of the moon and brought soil from there. The country is the only country in the history of the world to have such other feats. The soil from which the sample was taken cannot be seen from Earth.

On Tuesday (June 25), the soil-carrying capsule landed in the remote Mongolian region of Sizhiwang Banner.

An unmanned spacecraft called Cheng-6 took off from southern China on May 3 to retrieve soil from the Moon’s unseen region. It then successfully landed on the moon on June 2. The place where it lands is never seen from Earth. The Moon shows only one side of it to the Earth.

Due to gravitational pull, the Moon rotates on its axis in the same period as it orbits the Earth. As a result, the moon turns the same face towards the earth.

The lander of China’s space agency’s Cheng-6 mission spent two days collecting soil and rock from the oldest and largest crater on the moon. The robot arm and drill machine in the lander are used to collect these soils.

The lander is then re-attached to the orbiter from the lunar surface. After everything is done it is brought to earth.

“This is a big achievement for China,” said Martin Barstrow, a lecturer in astrophysics and space science at the University of Leicester. Collecting any samples from the moon is very difficult. It is more difficult from remote areas. Where the communication system is very difficult.

The United States, China, and the former Soviet Union (now Russia) have collected soil and rock samples from the near-moon region. But China was the first to bring soil from distant regions.
