China to launch first moon probe next month

China says it will launch a mission to put an unmanned rover on the moon early next month. The vehicle will be named Yutu. That translates as "Jade Rabbit" - a reference to a mythical figure that the Chinese believe they see when they look up to the moon. The rover will spend 3 months studying the moon's surface, collecting soil samples and sending back 3D images.
