BEIJING, Nov. 30 (Yonhap) -- China will send its first unmanned space probe to the moon early Monday, state media reported Saturday, in what would mark the country's first lunar landing.
The Chang'e Three rocket carrying the unmanned vehicle, named "Jade Rabbit," will be launched "at 1:30 a.m. Monday (from the) Xichang Satellite Launch Center," Xinhua news agency reported.
China launched its first moon orbiter, the Chang'e One, in 2007. Chang'e is the name of a goddess on the moon in Chinese legend.
