IN 15 years, China plans to put its astronauts on the Moon. But before that, a small machine rover (漫游者) will be sent there.

Recently, scientists in Shanghai showed a Moon rover to the public. Scientists said they spent four years making it. And they hoped the rover would be chosen to go to the Moon.

What is it like?

The rover has six wheels (轮子). It is 1.5 meters high and 200 kilograms in weight. It can take videos and pictures of the Moon. It can also get Moon soil and study it.

The rover can go as fast as 100 meters an hour. Experts said it can climb a 30-degree slope (斜坡). It is smart and can get around rocks.

The Moon is a harsh (艰苦的) place. According to researchers, the rover may need to be improved. The Moon's gravity (重力) is only one-sixth that of the Earth's. There are strong rays (射线) from the sun. The temperature also changes greatly there. It can be -180°C at night and 150°C in the day.

China will take three steps to explore the Moon. First, a spaceship will be sent to go around the Moon this year. There will be no person in the spaceship.

Then in 2012, a Moon rover will be sent to the Moon. Finally, an astronaut will land on the Moon sometime after 2017.

In 1969, US astronaut Neil Armstrong landed on the Moon. He was the first human to do so.

Your turn: imagination

If you could go to the Moon, what would you do there?

China's space explorers

The China-made Moon rover (R) looks very similar to NASA's Mars rovers, Spirit (勇气号) and Opportunity (机遇号). But there are differences.
