Chang’e-5 back with samples after lunar probe

Researchers work around Chang'e-5 lunar return capsule carrying moon samples next to a Chinese national flag, after it landed in northern China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Thursday. The return capsule, which was part of the lunar probe launched from the Wenchang Space Center on China's southern Hainan Island on November 25, touched down in the Siziwang in Inner Mongolia, in the early hours of Thursday, local time, according to state-run news agency Xinhua, citing the China National Space Administration.
