China is developing a lunar version of Long March-10 carrier rockets for its future moon landing missions. A ground test run for the first-stage propulsion system of the lunar version rocket was completed on Friday, marking a key step to realize the crewed moon landing goal by 2030.

The Long March 10 adopted a modular design which allows a flexible configuration of modules depending on the need of the mission. Currently, the crewed launch vehicle has two main versions for different space missions, said an engineer with the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.
