[20:29] After Chang’e 3′s successful landing, BACC will discuss whether the rover and the lander will separate immediately. Even so, the Yutu (Jade Rabbit) rover will take a few hours to move out of the lander and appear on moon surface at 6:00 am on Sunday.[20:28] Currently, staff at BACC are making final preparations to confirm Chang’e 3′s all parameters, including its flight speed, actual time and location of the lunar impact.[20:26] Zhou Jianliang, deputy chief engineer of Beijing Aerospace Control Center (BACC), said on Saturday morning that Chang’e 3 is scheduled to ignite the rockets at 9:00 pm to start the soft-landing process. He added the process will take 12 minutes.[20:23] The entire process of soft-landing will last 12 minutes and it will be performed by the probe itself, with “practically zero” chance of manual intervention being required. The Chang’e 3 mission has so far proceeded as planned.
