State broadcaster CCTV, took to Twitter, saying: "The Chang'e 3 is set to be launched for its moon mission from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center on Dec. 2." If the mission is successful, it will be a massive win for China, which hopes to have a permanent space station by 2020, and will eventually send a man to the moon.

 

All eyes are on China as we shift into the new week.
