On October 15, associate researcher Tian Hengci was processing lunar samples in the lunar sample clean room of the Institute of Geology and Geophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

On October 19, the Chinese Academy of Sciences released the latest research results of the Chang'e-5 lunar scientific research samples.

Studies have proved that the lunar sample of Chang'e 5 is a new type of lunar basalt, which fills the "blank" in lunar sampling missions of the United States and the former Soviet Union.

Research results show that magmatic activity still existed on the moon until 2 billion years ago, and the lunar mantle source area of ​​late magmatic activity is not rich in radioactive heat-generating elements and is very dry.

A number of breakthrough developments have given a new understanding of the evolution of the moon, and proposed new directions for future lunar exploration and research, which have been highly praised by international experts.
