China’s missions to the moon and Mars are starting to deliver exciting science results

A pair of daring Chinese missions launched in 2020 is sparking new and broader interest in planetary science in China. 

The Tianwen 1 orbiter and rover mission, which launched for Mars in July 2020, and Chang’e 5, which gathered the youngest lunar samples ever collected and delivered them to Earth later that year, are now delivering exciting science results. The new data and results emerging from the missions sparked a call for a special session at this year’s Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC), held in Texas and virtually beginning March 7.
