Chinese Moon Launch Today
Article: First Private Moon Mission to Launch on Chinese Rocket Today - Space.com
Today is expected to be the earliest launch window for China to launch its latest robotic mission to the moon. Onboard will be the first privately-funded component to ever travel to our nearest neighbor. LuxSpace, a company based in Luxembourg, has a mission called 4M. This module is attached to China's latest rocket.
The rocket stage on which the module is attached will circle the moon, then head back to Earth. Once in orbit back here, it will transmit signals, hopefully to be picked up by Amateur Radio operators around the world.
