Chinese lunar Rover gave the new photos of the back side of the moon

Chinese lunar Rover Yutu 2

A year has already Passed since then, as the Chinese lander Chang’e 4 and the lunar Rover Yutu 2 landed on the far side of the moon. All this time they studied the crater in the Background of his Pocket and shared the results of his discoveries through the only source of communication in the form of a repeater satellite Queqiao transmitting signals to Earth. In the framework of the research mission, the Chang’e and his colleague shared photos of that part of the lunar surface that is hidden from the observer because the gravitational grip of the Earth.

How does the reverse side of the moon?

Mysterious companion of the Earth in the vast space is beginning to reveal its unexplored side. According to an article published on the portal , the Chinese research program just released a batch of photos with a high resolution camera from the landing of the Chang’e 4 and the panoramic camera Yutu 2. Pictures were taken in a period of 12 lunar days, each of which corresponds to approximately 29 earth. During the long lunar day, the mission is in permanent sunlight, needed for operations when using solar energy. After the working cycle the appliances off for a two-week night, and half of the earth's satellite plunges into the darkness.

Throughout the year the Rover was moving along the winding path through the 180-km crater background Pocket that is part of the Aitken basin, whose size in diameter constitute more than a quarter . A huge amount of data obtained as a result of the mission, could shed light not only on the history of the satellite and the causes of the mysterious shock the pool, but answer is still unexplored issues regarding the evolution of the Solar system as a whole.

The Next Chinese mission Chang’e 5 to be launched in late 2020. However, the new module does not go to the dark side of the moon, as its predecessor. Instead, the mission will have to collect about two kilograms of lunar samples, transporting them further to the Ground. In the case of the success of the program Chang’e 5, mankind will be able to access to the lunar samples taken from the satellite since 1976. Experts hope that the samples of lunar rock will help in the planning of future expeditions to the moon, in particular, the mission “Artemis” from NASA, about which we have already written in .
