The National Space Administration of China (CNSA) has published a video showing how the Chang'e 4 spacecraft landed on the hidden side of the moon on January 3.
The ship had to land autonomously because it had no real-time communication with the mission control station. The landing site is a huge depression in the South Pole-Aitken basin, an area that is believed to be a crater produced by a large impact during the early years of the Moon.
The CNSA also published a 360-degree panoramic photo from the lander, which shows the Yutu 2 rover in the middle of the lunar landscape. The terrain is full of small craters, which could hinder the mobility of the vehicle.
Yutu 2 returned to the activity last Thursday after taking a break, time in which the solar radiation raised the temperature in the crater to more than 100 degrees Celsius.
