The CNSA told GT that the Chang'e-5 orbiter-returner combo successfully conducted its second course correction at the moon-Earth transfer orbit on Wed 9:15 am.

The 25-newton thrust engines onboard the craft worked for 8 seconds to carry out the operation.

The spacecraft is in good condition and on its way back to Earth.
