PolyU-made space instruments complete lunar sampling for Chang’e 5
In support of the Nation’s first lunar sample return mission, a PolyU research team developed and manufactured one of the key systems for this monumental undertaking, namely the “Surface Sampling and Packing System”, in collaboration with the China Academy of Space Technology. The system accomplished the crucial task of automatic sample collection and packaging on the lunar surface, and the sample successfully returned to Earth on 17 December, which represents a new landmark in the history of China’s deep space exploration.
