The China National Space Administration released a photo taken by the lander showing tracks left by the rover as it departed the spacecraft, though it did not specify how far the rover travelled.
The tasks of the Chang'e-4 include astronomical observation, surveying the moon's terrain, landform and mineral makeup, and measuring the neutron radiation and neutral atoms to study the environment of its far side.
While China's space program still lags America's, he said "China has already positioned itself at least as good as Russian Federation and the European Union".
Yutu will rove within Von Kármán craterand analyse the variations of composition of the lunar surface the Visible and Near-Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (VNIS), while also returning unprecedented images with a panchromatic camera. As the milestone landing is just hours away, conspiracy theorists and some internet cracks have put forward a freaky theory which may seem too hard for a common man's conscience to digest.
The Chang'e-4 probe which has already sent back its first close-up pictures from the surface is carrying instruments to analyse the unexplored region's geology and will conduct biological experiments.

The far side of the moon is exactly what it sounds like - the part of the moon that is always facing away from Earth. Scientists believe the far side could be an excellent place to perform radio astronomy, because it is shielded from the radio noise of Earth.
In 2003, China became the third country to put a man in space with its own rocket after the former Soviet Union and the United States, and in 2017 it said it was preparing to send a person to the moon. Previous reports estimated the probe would land some time between January 1 and 3, but officials may have narrowed it down to a more precise time frame.
Harvard astronomer Avi Loeb said that in the future, it may be possible to see much farther - and thus earlier - into the universe from the far side because the moon itself will block interfering radio signals from Earth.
Let's start with the farside, where China's Chang'e 4 lander touched down yesterday (Jan. 2), making China the first country to land a spacecraft there.
