In year-end wrap-ups, Chinese media and officials hailed the December 8 launch of Chang'e 4 as one of the nation's major achievements in 2018. The landing on Thursday was announced to the public by state broadcaster CCTV at the top of the noon news. "China views this landing as just a steppingstone, as it also views its future manned lunar landing, since its long-term goal is to colonize the moon and use it as a vast supply of energy". But it was this mystery that encouraged China to set out for the discovery, he added. The Chang'e 4 and its quirky rover won't be capable of that, but it will carry out a number of experiments and relay data it gathers during its time on the Moon's surface.

"The Chinese lunar space programme is hugely ambitious". That's because the moon takes the same amount of time to orbit the earth as it does for the moon to rotate once, in a phenomenon known as "tidal locking" that blocks direct radio signals from the earth to the moon's far side. The area where the probe has landed faces away from earth, meaning it is free from radio frequencies. China's lunar rover, Yutu-2, or Jade Rabbit-2, left the first ever "footprint" from a human spacecraft on the far side of the moon late at night on Thursday, after it separated from the lander smoothly.
