China's "Chang E-4" spacecraft, which landed on the moon, has sent the first picture showing the area of the landing site better.
Although the far side is often mistakenly referred to as the "dark" side of the Moon, it is no more dark than the near side that is visible for Earth.
The panoramic view of the far side of the Moon captured by the Change'e 4 lander.
After making a soft landing on January 3 at 10:26 am, Chang'e 4 released a lunar rover to roam and survey its surroundings in the Von Karman crater, the moon's largest, oldest and deepest one, located in the South Pole-Aitken basin. There are also very few of the "maria" - dark basaltic "seas" created by lava flows - that are evident on the more familiar near side.

Scientists have made a preliminary analysis on the terrains and landform surrounding the probe according to the panoramic pictures.
Now that Chang'e 4 snapped some footage, CNSA aims to conduct low-frequency radio astronomical observation, surveys of moon landforms, measure neutron radiation, and detect mineral composition.
He said the Chang'e-4 landed at an altitude of almost minus 6,000 metres.
