Zhang Hailian also told Zhongguo Daily that two launch vehicles will be needed, a new-generation manned spacecraft, a lunar lander and a lunar rover.
The first rocket will have to place a lunar lander in the orbit of the earth’s satellite. The second is a manned spacecraft.
In orbit, the lander and spacecraft will dock, the two astronauts will leave the spacecraft and transfer to the descent vehicle. It is he who will take astronauts to the surface of the moon. It is planned to spend six hours there.
