Now is the time for neXt Generation lunar space science

Chang'e 3 is a lunar exploration mission operated by China National Space Administration, incorporating a robotic lander and a rover. Part of the second phase of the Chinese Lunar Exploration Program (CLEP), it will be China's first lunar rover, and the first spacecraft in 37 years to make a soft landing on the Moon.
