China to send humans to moon before India: scientist
By Kim Young-gyo
HONG KONG, Oct. 7 (Yonhap) -- China will be able to send humans to the moon ahead of India, a Chinese scientist said Thursday, following the successful launch of a second unmanned moon orbiter.

China launched the spacecraft Chang'e-2 toward the moon last Friday from the southwestern province of Sichuan. The launch was made after the successful flight of China's first moon mission Chang'e-1 in March 2009.
