wooferhound (546132) writes "China has completed its first return mission to the moon with the successful re-entry and landing on Earth of an unmanned probe, state media reported. The mission was launched to test technology to be used in the Chang’e-5, China’s fourth lunar probe, which aims to gather and return samples from the surface in 2017. The military-run space project has plans for a permanent orbiting station by 2020 and eventually to send a human to the moon.
