The Chinese probe Chang'e-4 became the first to land on the so-called dark side of the moon - the side that's never visible from earth.

The rover, with a total mass of 140 kg, has a rectangular body 3.6 feet (1.1 m) high, 4.9 feet (1.5 m) long, and 3.3 feet (1 m) wide, but unlike the Yutu rover does not have a robotic arm. Spacecraft have taken pictures of the moon's far side before - a Soviet satellite took the first photographs of the far side in 1959, and the Apollo missions circled above it between 1968 and 1972 - but no lander has ever landed there.

ThinQ is also supposed to be able to improve sound quality, mixing up two-channel audio to make it sound like 5.1 surround sound. In addition, the 88-inch 8K Z9 model will feature even higher processing capabilities to offer 8K upscaling.

The rover, also known as Jade Rabbit 2, has six powered wheels, so it can keep working even if one fails, according to The Associated Press.

Every semester, Purdue University lunar and planetary scientist Jay Melosh demonstrates how the far side gets light using a bright light as the sun and students playing the roles of the moon and the Earth. "It's a small step for the rover, but one giant leap for the Chinese nation", Wu Weiren, the chief designer of Lunar Exploration Project said, in a twist of U.S. astronaut Neil Armstrong's famous comment when he became the first human to walk on the moon in 1969.
