China Post Launches Franchised Products on Chang'e-3 Mission2013-12-21

China Post recently launched a series of franchised postal products on the Chang'e-3 mission to mark the Chang'e-3 lunar probe’s successful completion of the country's first lunar soft landing.

China Post recently launched a series of franchised postal products on the Chang'e-3 mission to mark the Chang'e-3 lunar probe’s successful completion of the country's first lunar soft landing.

The products include commemorative envelopes and stamps and souvenir folders which mark the critical stages of the Chang'e 3 mission.

The Chang'e-3 mission is one of the most complicated and difficult tasks in China's space program.

The Chang'e-3 lunar probe was successfully launched on December 2, 2013. Comprising a lander and the moon rover Yutu, or Jade Rabbit, the Chang'e-3 lunar probe soft-landed on the moon at 9:11 p.m. on December 14, 2013. Yutu later separated from the lander and both took pictures of each other on the night of December 15, 2013, a move that marked the complete success of the Chang'e-3 mission.

The Chang'e-3 mission marked the full completion of the second phase of China's lunar program, which includes orbiting, landing and returning to the Earth. After the mission, China's lunar program will enter a new stage of unmanned automatic sampling and return, which will be more difficult.

The Chang'e-3 mission makes China the third country after the Soviet Union and the United States to soft land a spacecraft on lunar soil.
