Chang'e-5 coverage: possible link to possible live(ish) coverage from CCTV. Currently looks like launch will be around 20:25-21:15 UTC/3:25-4:15 p.m. ET today, but that's not official.

If India and China cooperate in its space endeavors, it’d be so awesome indeed. But unfortunately it doesn’t seem like it’ll happen. :/
