Fourteen Chinese babies have received the name Chang'e because they were born between October 24 and November 7, when China's first lunar probe, Chang'e-1, was launched into space.

The official website china.com.cn reported that all the parents of the babies are occupied in the aerospace industry, working in fields of research, production, measurement and control.

A huge photo of these lovely babies on Tuesday graced the auditorium stage of the China Academy of Space Technology, with their parents and other colleagues participating in the celebration.

Leaders with the Academy gave each parent a crystal plate printed with their baby's face and birthday, coupled with the dates of Chang'e-1's launch and orbit work.

The parents planned to get together again when Chang'e-1fully completes its mission.
