Matt_dk writes: China will launch its second lunar probe, Chang'e-2, in October 2010, and its first lunar rover before 2013, national media reported on Friday, citing a top space scientist. According to Ye Peijian, chief designer of the nation's first moon probe, the new lunar orbiter will feature "a charge-coupled device (CCD) camera on board, which has a much higher resolution than the camera on China's first lunar probe." "It will orbit 100 km closer to the moon [than the first probe] and will be equipped with better facilities. We expect to acquire more scientific data about the moon with increased accuracy," China daily quoted Ye Peijian as saying.

giant listings; we would find it hard to use them.
