China To Launch Moon Probe In 2007 - Person On the Moon Within 15 Years!
The probe will provide 3D images of the Moon, survey the lunar landscape, study lunar microwaves and estimate the thickness of the Moon's soil. China became the third nation to place a human in space in October 2003.
The Moon exploration programme includes a planned lunar fly-by in 2007, a "soft landing" in 2012, return of lunar samples by 2017, and thereafter landing an astronaut on the Moon.
