The newspaper “Global Times” also reported on Sunday that the launch will be done when the orbits of Mars and Earth are closest, which actually happens after every 26 months and also it lasts for about one month period.

"As a new generation of space engineers, we have mastered more powerful design tools. We hope also to achieve breakthroughs in innovation. Going to the far side of the moon is like climbing an unexplored mountain. We hope our lunar rover can make pioneering discoveries."
