Then, we need to make arrangement of follow-up works such as orbit control and orbit prediction. What's more, emergency response is also an important task."

Storyline


China is getting ready for the launch of Chang'e-5 mission in late November, with its final joint test conducted on Saturday morning.

The test was jointly conducted by Beijing Aerospace Control Center, Wenchang Space Launch Center, Xi'an Satellite Control Center, Yuanwang space tracking ship and all control stations.

As the last inter-system joint exercise before the coming launch, it aims to examine all the phases involved for the launching and orbit operation of the assembly of the Long March-5 rocket and Chang'e-5 lunar probe.

The mission will be one of China's most complicated and difficult space missions by far, according to the China National Space Administration.

"There will be 11 major flight phases. What we exercised today is the first phase, of going into orbit. The mission will last 23 days involving 23 times of major orbit control, six times of major separation control, powered lowering, moon surface taking off, lunar orbit rendezvous and other relevant tasks of higher risks in the history," said Peng Deyun, chief designer of Chang’e-5 mission team.

To fully acquire relevant data, the control center has also examined operation of multiple tasks during the joint test.

"The joint test mainly focuses on launching. This requires us to monitor the rocket real time flights while accurately calculating the orbits of detector and the rocket after their separation. Then, we need to make arrangement of follow-up works such as orbit control and orbit prediction. What's more, emergency response is also an important task," said Chen Ming, deputy chief engineer of Chang'e-5 mission team.

The Chang'e-5 mission aims to conduct unmanned lunar sample collection and return to Earth, one of the country's most complicated and challenging space missions. It will contribute to the scientific studies in fields such as the formation and evolution of the moon.
