Experts are working on building robots called “Chinese Super Masons” to produce the first bricks from the Moon’s soil.
Reuters news agency quoted Chinese media on April 13 as saying the country wants to start using lunar land to build a base on the planet within the next five years.
The Chang’e 5 probe is set to leave the lunar surface on December 3, 2020.

According to the Changjiang Daily (Changjiang Daily), over the weekend, more than 100 Chinese space scientists, researchers and entrepreneurs attended a workshop in the central city of Wuhan to discuss ways to build infrastructure on the Moon.
Speaking to the press, Mr. Ding Lieun, an expert from the Chinese Academy of Engineering, said that a team of experts is designing robot named “Chinese Super Masons” produce the first bricks from the ground of the Moon.
This robot will be sent to the Moon during the Chang’e 8 (Chang’e 8) space probe mission in 2028.
Bing Lieyun pointed out that building a habitat on the moon is necessary for the long-term exploration of this planet and will definitely be carried out in the future.
The last time China carried out a lunar exploration mission was during the launch of the Chang’e 5 spacecraft. This probe collected a total of 1,731 grams of soil and rock samples from the Moon To the earth.
On March 17, Chinese scientists proposed a number of goals for the future international lunar station, including observing Earth from the moon and utilizing lunar resources.
Head of the Moon and Deep Space Research Unit of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Zou Yongliao, announced the goals at the recent National Space Conference.
During the development of the research station design, scientists progressed by setting specific science and application goals.
These objectives are mainly related to the study of the evolution of the Moon, the formation and activities of a star, as well as the observation of the Sun and the Earth from the Moon.
