A spaceship has finally made it to the 'dark side' of the Moon
It took us 60 years since the first moon landing in 1959 (Soviet Union's Luna 2 mission) to finally make it to the 'dark side' of the Moon.
The China National Space Administration (CNSA) landed Chang’e 4 in the unexplored South Pole-Aitken basin, which is basically the largest, oldest, deepest, crater on the Moon’s surface.
Lunar explorer Chang'e 4 touched down at 10.26 am local time, according to Chinese state media, and in another first, the spacecraft transmitted a never-before-seen image of the unexplored surface.
Here's a close-up photo of the dark side of the Moon.
For those who don't know what the dark side of the moon is, humans always see the same side of the moon. Since the Moon rotates on its axis and orbits Earth, we can never catch a glimpse of the elusive far side from Earth.
Now that we've made it to the far side of the moon, what’s next?
