China’s new-generation spacecraft takes its maiden flight as the country moves one step closer towards landing a man on the moon

China has successfully launched its largest carrier rocket with a new-generation spacecraft today, marking a significant progress for the country towards landing a man on the moon.

The Long March-5B carrier rocket took off at 6pm local time at the Wenchang Space Launch Center in the southern island province of Hainan, state broadcaster CCTV announced on Tuesday.

The spacecraft carried by the rocket is expected to one day transport astronauts to a space station that China plans to complete by 2022 – and eventually to the moon.
