They have successfully completed five missions, Chang'e-1 through Change-5, featuring robotic lunar orbiters, landers, and rovers. Dr. Jolliff will explain what these missions have accomplished and what the plans are for continued exploration of the Moon, including for the first Chinese astronauts on the Moon.
