    "Lunar samples on display at China's national museum"

    http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/202..._139771806.htm

    Lunar samples brought back by China's Chang'e-5 probe are on public display at the National Museum of China on Saturday.

    The samples, mainly soil from the lunar surface, are preserved in a container made of artificial crystal.

    Designed in the shape of a zun, a traditional Chinese bronze ware, the container is 38.44 cm high and 22.89 cm wide. The height represents the average distance between Earth and the moon of 384,400 km, while the width represents the 22.89 days of the lunar probe's mission.

    Besides the samples, the exhibition also features around 40 objects related to the lunar probe, together with multiple photos and videos.

    Lunar samples returned to Earth by China’s Chang’e-5 mission are undergoing intensive study and offer revealing details about the Moon.

    China’s Chang’e-5 (CE-5) mission was the first robotic Earth-Moon round-trip collection of lunar bits and pieces since the Soviet Union’s Luna 24 mission in 1976.
