After the samples were collected and sealed, the Chang-5 climber took off from the lunar surface late Thursday, and the unmanned encounter and docking with the Orbiter-Returner in lunar orbit was an unprecedented achievement.
One of the most complex and challenging missions in Chinese space history is the Chang-5, as well as the world’s first moon-model mission for more than 40 years.
