Setting an ambitious dream, China has said it wants to send men to the moon by 2036, a Chinese official has said.

In 2003 China became the third country to send a man to space in its own rocket.


It has touted its plans for moon exploration and in late 2013 completed the first lunar "soft landing" since 1976 with the Chang'e-3 craft and its Jade Rabbit rover, reports say.

China must "raise its abilities and use the next 15 to 20 years to realize manned lunar exploration goals, and take a firm step for the Chinese people in breaking ground in the utilization of space", Lieutenant General Zhang Yulin, deputy commander of the China Manned Space Program, was quoted saying.
