Just watched the real time broadcast in our office.
China’s first Moon Probe was launched. It should arrive Moon very soon.
The time was 18:05.
Now it is on the way – good luck and have a good trip to the Moon!
Chang’e is not word “change”. Let me explain how you should pronounce it.
Chang should be pronounced like ch-ong, with Ch pronounced as “ch” in “children”. “ang” should be pronounced as “ong” in “long”.
The letter “e” should be pronounced as the “ear” part of “earth”.
Chang-e is also called the Moon Lady. In the old story, Chang-e lived on earth and then she flied to the moon and lived there with her small rabbit.
Here is the illustration of the probe course on Sohu.com.
