Further steps to explore the satellite will be difficult, he said, as the next phase of the program includes the creation of an outpost to place scientists on the surface. Currently, the department is already engaged in planning and feasibility studies for the project of the future lunar station.
During the last mission, China sent a robotic probe Chang’e 4 to the surface of the earth’s satellite, which, among other things, conducted the first biological experiment to grow cotton, rapeseed and Arabidopsis from seeds.
