It seems this doesn't fit into any topics, so I start a new one...

The Wen Wei Po of Hong Kong published a long, exclusive interview with Ouyang Ziyuan, the CLEP chief scientist known as "the father of Chang'e", Ouyang mentioned a lot of details about Chang'e 3, 4 and some future planetary missions...

This one address the issue of Chang'e 3: http://paper.wenweipo.com/2014/04/16/CH1404160017.htm , there is some details about how Yutu hibernates and what isn't working at the moment (APXS is on the list).

This one discloses the discussion for Chang'e 4: http://paper.wenweipo.com/2014/04/16/CH1404160016.htm , says that it may land on the South Pole, or test the lunar re-launch technique, or may be directed to Mars.

This one talks about CNSA's future visions: http://paper.wenweipo.com/2014/04/16/CH1404160020.htm , nothing definitive yet but it mentioned that the CAS space science development plan targets a manned lunar mission in 2020-30s. Ouyang comments that a Mars mission is yet to be approved but "2018 may be a good guess".

ADMIN: Please note that while the final report contains reference to manned spaceflight, UMSF's longstanding rules and guidelines does not permit discussion on that topic. See rule 1.6. Thank you.

News about Cháng'é-4:

China to launch moon mission with private investments before 2020

Beijing: For the first time, China will launch its Chang'e-4 lunar probe with private investments before 2020, the government said on Thursday.

The probe will conduct technical experiments and collect data. The lunar mission will pilot a program that uses private investment from individuals and enterprises for the first time, a move aimed at accelerating aerospace innovation, cutting production costs and promoting military-civilian relationships, according to the State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defence (SASTIND).

It will also expand investments allowed into military industry, state-run Xinhua news agency reported. Chang'e-4 began as a backup probe for Chang'e-3. Since Chang'ge-3's lander and rover successfully landed on the moon in 2013, Chang'e-4 will be given a new mission, which will be decided after further study.

My hopes to see another moon rover are fading... sad.gif
