This was reported by CGTN TV channel with reference to the statement of the Chinese Manned Space Flight Program Administration (CMSA).
According to the TV channel, research and construction work under the project is already underway, it is planned to land the first representative of China on the Moon by 2030. During the mission, China will launch an unmanned vehicle and a descent module that will remain in orbit of the Earth's natural satellite, modeled on the previous Chang'e lunar programs. Then the manned spacecraft will go into orbit of the Moon and dock with the base station. After that, the taikonaut will land with the help of a lander, and upon completion of research work, it will use it for a return trip to the spacecraft, which will take it back to Earth.
CGTN notes that the launch pad for the new project will be located at the Wenchang Cosmodrome in Hainan Province in southern China. Taikonaut will be delivered to the moon and from its surface by a spacecraft developed on the basis of models of the Shenzhou series, which has been used for many years during Chinese space missions. The launch vehicle will be reusable and will be able to carry from three to seven people, and the updated descent module will be able to deliver up to two people to the surface of the Earth's satellite, along with equipment and various cargo. It will also provide the Taikonauts with everything necessary to stay on the surface of the moon and communication channels for transmitting scientific data.
As part of the lunar program, China will also soon send automatic stations Chang'e-6, Chang'e-7 and Chang'e-8 to the Earth's natural satellite in cooperation with Roscosmos. During the upcoming missions, it is planned to test key technologies and begin construction of the International Scientific Lunar Station (ISS), a complex of experimental research facilities that can be controlled remotely. The first mission will go to the Moon in 2026, by 2028 it is planned to complete the construction project of the MNLS, writes "TASS".
