The lunar mission: how China landed on the moon

Chang'e, with its rover Yutu, or Jade Rabbit, has become the moon's first visitor in 37 years, following Luna 24, which graced its surface in 1976. In landing the craft, China has joined the ranks of countries that successfully landed on earth's natural satellite, following the United States and Soviet Union. Here, we marvel at the space voyages that have taken us one step closer to deciphering the distant mystery that has intrigued mankind for millennia. By Adolfo Arranz
