As with the 382 kg of lunar samples returned by United States astronauts from 1969 to 1972, they will be analyzed for age and composition and are expected to be shared with other countries.

Xu Hongliang, spokesman for the administration, said at a news briefing hosted by the State Council Information Office that it is the first time in 44 years that humanity has retrieved soil samples from the moon, so many space agencies around the world are paying close attention to the feat. The mission consisted of four individual unmanned spacecrafts - a landing module, an ascent module, an orbital module, and a reentry module.
When asked if China would share any samples with the United States, which limits its NASA space agency from directly cooperating with China, Wu said existing USA restrictions were "unfortunate".
The landing marks the end of a 23-day mission that saw the spacecraft land on the moon and collect samples before its ascension.
The rocks and other debris were obtained both by drilling into the moon's crust and scooping directly off the surface.
That site was chosen because it has a younger geological age than where samples collected by the US and the Soviet Union were taken more than 40 years ago. It is not yet clear how much lunar surface material Chang'e-5 was successful in collecting.
The latest breakthrough for China's increasingly ambitious space program that includes a robotic mission to Mars and plans for a permanent orbiting space station. "At first glance, I thought you were saying we have found animals on the moon", read one comment.
In January previous year, China made history when its lunar probe comprising Chang'e 4 moon lander and its rover Yutu 2 landed on the Von Karman Crater in the South Pole-Aitken Basin of the moon. While many conversations around China and the United States in space have focused on competitive, even military, aspects of a new "space race", some in the United States admit that space exploration could be one arena where both countries could cooperate, and perhaps even use it to mitigate other tensions in the relationship.
