HansonMB (1988686) writes "After launching on one of the nation’s Long March rockets and a three-day transit, Chang'E 3 will reach the Moon and enter into a 62 mile orbit. Once settled, the 2,645 pound lander will separate from the roughly 8,200 pound spacecraft and descend into a highly elliptical orbit 62 by 9.5 miles above the surface."

  • Using moon dust as a propellent... no, I'm serious.
    blast moon dust downward at moondust, and kick more moondust up than it takes to do that.
    if that works out anyways...

    blast it down and backwards to move.

    that'd probably take nuclear power, but how cool that it moon hover's
