Details About Chang'e-4's Landing The crater is also where Yutu-2, the rover released by Chang'e-4, will explore. Soon thereafter, a color image of the mission's immediate surroundings was relayed back to Earth. Wu said Monday that NASA shared information about its lunar orbiter satellite in hopes of monitoring the landing of the Chang'e 4 spacecraft, which made China the first country to set down on the far side of the moon earlier this month. (2 kilograms) of lunar samples and bring them back to Earth, Wu said. Previous spacecraft have seen the far side, but none has landed on it.

The pioneering landing highlights China's ambitions to rival the US, Russia and Europe in space through manned flights and the planned construction of a permanent space station.

"From the images sent back from Chang'e-4, we can see the area surrounding the probe is dotted with craters of different sizes, and it's very hard for the rover to drive in the region", Sun Zezhou, chief designer of the Chang'e-4 probe, said at a press conference of the State Council Information Office Monday.

The first two phases have been accomplished, and the next step is to launch the Chang'e 5 probe to collect roughly 4 lbs. State media reports that Chang'e-4's mission includes "low-frequency radio astronomical observation, surveying the terrain and landforms, detecting the mineral composition and shallow lunar surface structure, and measuring neutron radiation and neutral atoms".

Some places at the south pole of the moon receive sunlight for over 180 consecutive days.
