The museum also unveiled photos showing a specially designed container to display the Lunar Earth. The artificial quartz stand reproduces the zun, a fine bronze wine vessel often used for grand ceremonies in the Shang (16th and 11th centuries BC) and Chu (11-771 BC) dynasties. The Lunar Earth will be placed in a hollow globe in the center of the arc.

Sample is among 60 grams recovered on a 23-day robotic mission. Chang’e 5 was launched from the Wenchang Space Launch Center in Hainan County on November 24 and landed on the moon’s surface on December 1.
