The country’s space agency aims to overtake NASA with its ongoing Chang’e lunar program and future crewed missions to Mars.

China announced its plans to launch three new uncrewed missions to the Moon after the discovery of a new lunar mineral that could be harvested as an energy source in the future, a report from Bloomberg.

China’s National Space Administration announced on Saturday, September 10, that it was given the green light to start planning the launch of three new orbiters to the Moon over the next decade. The new missions will form a part of the country’s ongoing Chang’e lunar program.
