First time ever a rover has been landed on the far side of the moon. It is a big thing for those who are interested in finding what is really there on the dark side of the moon, the side we never see from earth.

China has launched Chang’e 4 from southwest China in early December and landed at 10:26 a.m. Beijing time on Wednesday. It is landed on Von Karman crater, the largest known impact crater in the solar system. This lander has a rover named Yutu for exploration of the surface.

FAR SIDE of the Moon

Far side of the moon is filled with craters as it protects us from lot of meteors. A direct radio contact is not possible on this side of moon; hence a quandary China’s relay satellite is used for communication. Predecessor Chang’e 3 for landed on the near side of the lunar surface.

Various pictures have been released by the camera on board. The surface looked red in color. This is surprising because all the photos till date showed white color surface. It is because of the light reflected from the lander.
