China’s Chang’e-4 probe lands on far side of moon

The local media reported the unmanned Chang’e 4 lunar lander and rover spacecraft touched down at 10:26 a.m. local time (02:26 GMT) on Thursday.

While past missions have been to the Earth-facing side, this is the first time ever a spacecraft has landed on the unexplored far side of the moon. 

The probe is carrying instruments to characterise the region’s geology.
