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

Chinese Rover Wakes Up on Moon's Far Side After Lunar Nap

Instead, signals are sent from the lunar surface up to a relay satellite called Queqiao, which launched in May 2018 and is hovering in an orbital "parking spot" from which it can communicate with Earth. Previous spacecraft have seen the far side of the moon, but nobody had ever landed on it before.

It is worth mentioning that both Chang E-4 and Chandrayaan-2 wanted to "first of all" land on the Moon.

The landing site is a smooth plain within the crater Von Kármán on the moon's dark side.

"They have reached the predetermined engineering goals, right now they are getting into the stage of scientific searches", Zhang Kejian, director of the China National Space Administration, said before engineers at the Beijing centre. 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. The probe is shown adjusting its altitude, speed and pitch as it seeks to avoid obstacles on the ground.
