China 'lifts mysterious veil' by landing probe on far side of the moon
BEIJING (Reuters) - A Chinese space probe successfully touched down on the far side of the moon on Thursday, China's space agency said, hailing the event as a historic first and a major achievement for the country's space program.
The Chang'e-4 lunar probe, launched in December, made the "soft landing" at 0226 GMT and transmitted the first-ever "close range" image of the far side of the moon, the China National Space Administration said.
Good job China. Please continue space exploration
I am proud of you. China.
China advancement in high-tech is inexorable despite blockade and containment
If the probe landed on the side of the moon that always faces away from the earth how are they able to communicate with it.
They are using a relay satellite. Solving the communication problem may be the most challenging part of mission.
One small steps for man and a giant leap for mankind
I see a first colony being established by them there within the next 15 years
the moon will be a tourist attration soon, I mean for some multi millionaires
Hooray for China!
So, no aliens hiding there?
Did they thank the people from whom they stole the technology?
Looks like a fat man's belly button.
the Amuricuns must be accusing China of copy and steal their intellectual property. You do first doesn't mean those peoples who do it later are copying you
China has almost caught up to 1969 America (except that was a manned mission....)
I don't think the aliens will appreciate that.
now they can claim it belong to china now
At the mean time, malaysia is going backwards
nice work china!
Space is limitless. The true gold is space. It makes one wonder why should human waste time and energy on other useless things. China already can depend on themselves. They can do everything themselves.
