China's lunar probe lands on Moon

Chang'e- 1, China's first lunar probe, impacted the Moon at 4.13 p.m . Beijing Time (0813 GMT) on March 1, 2009 said sources with the State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense.
The satellite ended its 16- month mission on March 1, 2009 when it hit the lunar surface at 1.50 degrees south latitude and 52.36 degrees east longitude.
This is the first phase of China's three-stage moon mission, which will lead to a landing and launch of a rover vehicle around 2012.
"Chang'e" is name after legendary Chinese Moon goddess.
