BREAKING: Lunar Probe Lands on Far Side of Moon

Chinese state-run media reports that China has successfully landed a rover on the far side of the moon.

The landing of the Chang-e 4 lunar probe landed on the side of the moon that never faces earth, “due to the moon’s rotation,” CNN says.

The probe lifted off on the 8th of December, entering the orbit of the moon just four days later.

“Once safely on the moon, the lander will tackle a long to-do list, including conducting the first lunar low-frequency radio astronomy experiment, observe whether plants will grow in the low-gravity environment, and explore whether there is water or other resources at the poles.”
