China is launching the country's first lunar probe next month.
Officials say the spacecraft will release a six-wheeled lunar rover equipped with four cameras and two mechanical legs to dig up soil samples. It will patrol the moon's surface for at least three months.
A public vote determined the name of the lunar rover - they're calling it "Yutu" which means jade rabbit in Chinese folklore.
China's space program is trying to take on America, and win.
