China's Chang'e-6 Mission to Solicit Payloads

The Xinhua news infosite has reported that China has announced a cooperation plan for their future Chang'e-6 mission

The nation is offering to carry a total of 20 kg. solicited payloads, according to the China National Space Administration (CNSA) this week.

The orbiter and lander of the Chang'e-6 mission will each reserve 10 kg. for payloads, which will be selected from both domestic colleges, universities, private enterprises and foreign scientific research institutions, said Liu Jizhong, director of the China Lunar Exploration and Space Engineering Center of the CNSA, at a press conference.

The Chang'e-6 mission will be designed to bring samples back from the South Pole of the moon, revealed the administration earlier.
