Submission + - Chinese Moon Probe Ventures into Deep Space (xinhuanet.com)

hackingbear writes: After completing its 6 month moon survey mission, China's second moon orbiter Chang'e-2 is found to be in excellent condition and has abundant fuel left, and so it is set off from its moon orbit into deep space, heading toward Lagrangian point L2 about 1.5 million kilometers away from the earth, or about 4 times farther out than the moon. The orbiter left its moon orbit at 5:10 p.m., according to the State Administration of Science,Technology and Industry for National Defence (SASTIND). The probe is expected to perform exploration at L2. It is the first Chinese space craft venture beyond the moon and establish the country's capability in deep space exploration.
