Since the moon's revolution cycle is the same as its rotation cycle, the same side always faces the Earth. It continued with a near side lander, Chang'e-3, in 2013.
The work of Chang'e 4, which is carrying a rover, includes carrying out astronomical observations and probing the structure and mineral composition of the terrain. Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, and Saudi Arabia contributed payloads that will measure radiation and use low-frequency radio astronomy to listen for faint signals lingering in the cosmos since the formation of the universe's first stars, among other things. What is known about the lunar far side is that it is very different from the near side of the moon that the U.S. put men on during the Apollo era.
China conducted its first crewed space mission in 2003, becoming only the third country to do so after Russian Federation and the United States.

Now, in 2019, China's space program has scored its own piece of lunar history, as it becomes the very first nation to land a robotic mission on the far side of the Moon.
