A lunar day equals 14 days on Earth, and a lunar night is the same length. During the lunar n上海后花园

上海后花园Chang’e 4 was lifted atop a Long March 3B rocket in early December at the

The probe made a soft landing on the far side on Jan 3 and then released Y

utu 2, the world’s seventh moon rover, and also the first to get to the far side and survey t

上海后花园he South Pole-Aitken basin, the largest and deepest known basin in the solar system.

The scientific tasks of the Chang’e 4 mission include low-frequency radio a

ral composition and shallow lunar surface structure, as well as measuring neutron radiation and neutral atoms.

上海后花园As no probe had landed on the far side before Chang’e 4, all scien

China’s next lunar probe, Chang’e 5, will weigh about 8.2 metric tons and will be the largest a

re-entry module. The probe will be sent by China’s largest carrier rocket, Long March 5, from the Wenchang Space Launch C

If the Chang’e 5 mission succeeds, China will become the third nation to retrieve lunar samples, after the United States and Russia.

Former US Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers on Tu上海419论坛

“By labeling as Chinese currency manipulation an exchange-rate move that was obv

The city was in shock after masked radical protesters escalated violence on July 1 by上海千花坊

storming into the city’s legislature and vandalizing the complex, resulting in an early recess of the legi

上海千花坊品茶微信slature and costing about HK$40 million to HK$50 million ($5.1 million to $6.4 million) to repair.

One of the lawless intruders, who took off his mask, was identified as a “pro-Hong Kong in

It was also reported by the media that a large group of violent rioters had fled to Taiwan to seek

上海千花坊品茶微信asylum shortly after July 1. Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen described them as “friends from Hong Kong” and sa

In the wake of the violent attack on July 1, Tung Chee-hwa, vice-chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese Peo

The design of liberal studies is flawed, Fan said, since there are no syllabuses or te

上海千花坊Currently, liberal studies is a compulsory subject and examinations also are required.

“If students want to make high marks, they must follow what the teachers teach them an
