A NASA satellite recorded the moment when the Chinese probe Chang’e 4 has landed on the moon. It happened on January 30. It landed in the crater the background of the Pocket on the back side of the moon.
According to Science Alert, the Chinese station was the first machine that made a soft landing on the dark side of the moon.
Interestingly, the probe LRO (station NASA for the moon) was over 330 kilometers from the landing site, so this hindered the recognition of Chang e 4 .
“Because LRO was located 330 kilometers East of the landing site, landing strip Chanyi-4 has a width of only about two pixels. Mountain range in the background is the Western wall of the crater the background of the Pocket, which rises more than 3 thousand meters,” – said the scientist, mark Robinson.

What is Chang e 4?
Is this the Chinese station, which investigates the reverse side of the moon. In particular, the station inspects, examines the landforms, as well as analyses of mineral composition and structure of the upper layers of the lunar surface, and the like. This will allow to make representation about the conditions on the reverse side of the moon.
