China’s Long March-5 rocket has recently made its maiden voyage into near-Earth orbit. According to scientists, this rocket alone is powerful enough to land people on the moon.
Long March 5 is about as potent as the largest rocket currently available to the US.
China has only recently unveiled images of its Mars rover as well as launched its most powerful rocket. The country might have kept silent about its space program for years, but its recent developments could indicate that China is a force to be reckoned with.
China recently announced the details of its first Martian probe, which consists of a lander and a rover. The probe is currently open for public naming suggestions.
