  • In space, the US sees a rival in China

According to the CNSA, in the following days, Yutu-2 and the lander will face the challenge of extremely high temperatures in the lunar day.

The CNSA said that Yutu is a symbol of kindness, purity, and agility, and is identical to the moon rover in both outlook and connotation.

In Chinese folklore, Yutu is the white pet rabbit of Chang'e, the moon goddess who lent her name to the Chinese lunar mission.

Wu Weiren, chief designer of the lunar exploration project, told the state broadcaster CCTV: "This giant leap is a decisive move for our exploration of space and the conquering of the universe". Yutu 2 has already put a fair bit of space between itself and the lander, trundling over near the rim of a small crater on the floor of Von Kármán, which itself lies within an even larger impact feature - the 1,550-mile-wide (2,500 km) South Pole-Aitken Basin.

China's mission is to learn more about the little-understood region of the moon and compete with the United States and Russian Federation as a powerhouse of space exploration.

This handout picture taken by the Chang'e-4 probe and released by China National Space Administration on January 3, 2019 shows an image of the "dark side" of the moon.

The evidence of this latest defeat - Bournemouth's 10th in 13 games - suggests more defensive reinforcements may be required. I've hardly seen him to be honest. "We have done relevant tests and medicals". "There's no chance for anything else".

Chang'e-4 is carrying six experiments from China and four from overseas, including low-frequency radio astronomical studies - aiming to take advantage of the lack of interference on the moons' far side.

"As long as we keep it clean of radio interference, the far side of the moon is very good for radio astronomy", he said.

China on Thursday landed its Chang'e 4 spacecraft on the moon's far side - also known, mistakenly, as the "dark side" - which no nation had done before.

The news inspired dreamier thoughts for advertising employee Shang Yuegang. It has a maximum speed of 0.1 miles per hour and can climb a 20-degree hill or mount an obstacle up to 8 inches tall, the report said.

During the final round, Yutu-2 stood out from nine other names in online voting and a special committee discussion.
