Being a member of the search team for the Chang'e 5 spacecraft's return filled 21-year-old Kang Hongyu with the type of pride that is undimmed despite freezing weather.

Kang is a member of the militia cavalry team of Siziwang Banner of the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, where the capsule landed early on Thursday morning, bringing back soil and rock samples from the moon.

Before the landing, ground support personnel and the recovery team were in place to ensure everything around the site was organized and the transfer of the capsule processed smoothly.
