China's quest for the moon

  • I showed a Chinese version of this clip to the Director of COSTIND's Media Division.
  • "Maiden Voyage" is documentary about China's scientific quest for understanding of the Moon and Beyond.
  • Within the next two years, four independent spacecraft (SELENE, Chang'E 1, Chandrayaan 1 and Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter) will orbit the Moon carrying an extensive array of sophisticated science and exploration instruments. Our understanding of the Moon and its resources will be revolutionized when the rich array of data from this flotilla is analyzed by scientists and experts around the world.
  • Produced in China, with co-operation of the Chinese government and scientific community, the "Maiden Voyage" story will allow viewers in the East and West to understand the scientific goals of China's CHANG E lunar exploration program and its vision for the future, as well as prepare the way for global participation in the extension of human presence on the Moon and beyond, for the benefit of all mankind.
