Data collected by the Chang'e-1 lunar exploration satellite will be published for more academic researchers to use, at a date to be decided by the Orbiting Moon Engineering Science Applications Committee. Recently, the commander-in-chief and designer of China's moon probing satellite, academician Ye Peijian, made this statement in a report at China's University of Geosciences, according to Yangtze Daily.

According to Ye, in the beginning of this year, while the whole nation was celebrating the Lantern Festival; Chang'e 1 met with its first lunar eclipse. During the eclipse, Chang'e 1 relied entirely on satellite operation indicators. When it emerged from the shadow, experts expressed relief that Chang'e was functioning very well and even had energy reserves. In August this year, Chang'e 1 will once again move into the shadows to experience another lunar eclipse. However, "we are confident she will make it through the event safely!" Ye said.
