China says it has successfully landed a spacecraft on the Moon’s surface.

The purpose of the mission is to gather rock samples and bring them back to Earth for research.

The spacecraft is expected to spend two or three days collecting about 2kg of rocks.

It will be the first time in 44 years that samples have been brought back from the Moon.

The last mission to collect Moon samples was the Soviet Luna mission in 1976.

The materials being brought back are thought to be 1.2 or 1.3 billion years old and should provide insights on the geological history of the Moon.
