China is putting the finishing touches on its latest lunar probe.

This probe includes a Lander and moon rover.

The country hopes to land their carrier rocket on the moon by mid-December.

This mission represents the second phase of China's lunar program which includes orbiting, landing, and returning to Earth.

The unmanned mission marks China's first attempt at a soft-landing on the lunar surface and the first soft-landing on the moon since the soviet Luna 24 probe in 1976.
