Watch China's rover drive around on the dark side of the moon

On Jan. 2, China stunned the world by landing its Chang'e-4 probe on the far side of the moon.

China successfully put a lander and rover combo onto the surface of the moon becoming the first nation to explore the far side of the moon from its surface.

China will seek to establish an worldwide lunar base one day, possibly using 3D printing technology to build facilities, the Chinese space agency said on Monday, weeks after landing a rover on the moon's far side.

In addition to confirming the reliability of this relay link, CNSA mission controllers have managed to boot up Chang'e 4's instruments and performed "two-way mutual shooting", in which the lander and probe took photos of each other.

The future launches will culminate with a mission to test equipment for an global moon research base, Wu Yanhua, deputy chief commander of China's Lunar Exploration Programme, said at a press briefing.

Waring also added that China is following the footsteps of the United States, as NASA had already faked moon landing. The state-run China Daily said that was the first such form of cooperation since the 2011 USA law was enacted.

Hamilton and Mercedes officially crowned 2019 champions
Ferrari have not denied their interest in Hamilton and the British driver has been flattered by their advances. It's not easy as the competition is very strong", he said.

NASA has not published any statements on the collaboration and could not immediately be reached for comment.

"I just took a look at this wonderful panoramic photo of China's after they landed the rover on the dark side of the moon.and what did I find?"

The rover, dubbed Yutu-2 (Jade Rabbit), was preparing to go back to work after waking from five days of hibernation last Thursday.

The Chang'e-5 mission, set to collect samples from the near side of the moon, will be carried out at the end of the year, while another probe will be sent to Mars by 2020, Wu Yanhua, deputy head of the space administration, told a briefing, according to an official online transcript. The image is a circular, 360-degree shot, which scientists used to create another wide panoramic picture. The probe is shown adjusting its altitude, speed and pitch as it seeks to avoid obstacles on the ground.

In 2013, China became just the third country, after the US and the then-Soviet Union, to successfully "soft land" on the Moon when its Chang'e 3 lander reached the lunar surface.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 Moon landing and lunar missions continue to be a source of fascination for all segments of the population.
