What kind of probe?

Oh, that's all right, then.

I can't think how this can have escaped my attention for so long, but... it wasn't until I visited Guizhou (way down in the far south-west of China) a few weeks ago that I discovered that Yanjing, Beijing's local beer, is an official sponsor of the Chinese effort to reach the Moon.

Does this mean astronauts will be taking beer on the spaceship with them???

No way!

And presumably they use erguotou to fuel the rocket.

A good point.

I wonder if there's an online source providing a complete list of sponsors of the Chinese Lunar Program. I bet the California Beef Noodle King does their catering.
