China’s probe sends panoramic image of moon’s far side

The Chang'e 4 lunar lander sits pretty on the moon's far side in this image taken by the Jade Rabbit 2 rover. Since this is the first time a lander and robo-rover sidekick has successfully touched down and ventured out to the far side, the images are fascinating and useful.

Because the panorama was captured by the Chang'e 4 lander, it shows on the left the Yutu 2 rover, complete with the tire tracks left behind by the adventuring robot.

The pictures, shown on the state broadcaster CCTV, showed the Jade Rabbit 2 rover and the Chang'e 4 spacecraft that transported it during the first soft landing on the side of the moon that always faces away from Earth.

The lander succeeded in its first task of deploying its rover - named Yutu-2 - which has started exploring the Moon's Von Karman crater.

To overcome the problem, the China National Space Administration launched the Queqiiao relay satellite, last May to assist with the relay exchange between Earth and the Chang'e-4 probe.

The craters close to the rover - including one that was 20 meters wide (65 feet) with a depth of about four meters (13 feet) - will pose great challenges when planning its route, Li said.

At 4:47 p.m. BJT on Friday, the images of the lander and the rover appeared on a large screen at the Beijing Aerospace Control Center, showing the Chinese national flag on both the lander and the rover with the desolate landscape dotted with craters on the far side of the moon as the background.

As a result of the tidal locking effect, the moon's revolution cycle is the same as its rotation cycle. CNSA also released a new panorama image of the far side of the moon's topography. The deepest region on the Moon, where there is an altitude of minus 9,100 meters, is about 700 kilometers to the south of the probe.

Didn't know about allegations Manafort shared polling
Asked if he thought special counsel Robert Mueller's final report should be made public, Trump said: "We'll have to see".

"The information from the depths of the moon will be one of our focuses in the exploration", he said.

CNSA will also study the "Lunar Micro Ecosystem", which was previously installed on the Chang'e 4 lander.

"We hope Chang'e-4 could carry out unprecedented and more challenging tasks", said Wu Weiren, chief designer of China's lunar exploration program. And the SPA Basin might be an impact from that period.
