t's Official: A Lander Is Headed to The Far Side of The Moon

VICTOR TANGERMANN, FUTURISM
8 DEC 2018

It's official. At 2:23 am in southern China, a rocket carrying unique payload successfully launched from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center.

On board is a lander which, if all goes smoothly, will soon make history by touching down on the far side of the Moon.

The Chang'e 4
Futurism has previously reported on the Chang'e 4 lunar lander, which is scheduled to land near the Moon's southern pole in a giant plain called the Von Kármán crater. It's mission will be to explore the composition of the lunar surface.

Scientists will study the data it collects in order to see how it compares to samples from the near side of the Moon.
