Nasa finally reveal video imaging of the dark side of the moon

The first-ever vehicle to lớn make a soft landing on the ‘dark-side’ of the Moon has taken some eerie snapshots of its rarely-seen surface

China’s Chang’e-4 spacecraft was sent on its mission around this time last year so to mark the one year anniversary the country has released some of the images & scientific data it collected.

The small Yutru 2 rover that was released by the spacecraft has travelled around 350 meters on the far side of the Moon’s surface.

The far side of the Moon is commonly referred to lớn as the ‘dark side’ because tidal forces from Earth have slowed down its rotation so much that the same side is always facing Earth.

This is a phenomenon called tidal locking.

Luckily for us, the Chang’e-4 spacecraft và Yutru 2 rover were equipped with cameras so scientists could take a closer look at what’s happening there.

As the Yutru-2 rover was roaming around it studied rock formations and took photos.

Scientists were able to control and connect with the lander & rover via a satellite that orbits the Moon.

They collected data over 12 lunar days.

As lunar days are equivalent to lớn 29 days, 12 hours và 44 minutes on Earth, this means the rover was working hard for most of 2019.

The Chang’e-4 lander had a high-tech camera that could rotate 360 degrees mounted lớn the top of it.

It died at the over of the first lunar day but the Yutru-2 rover continued on.

The mission, which landed in the South Pole–Aitken basin impact crater in the southern hemisphere of the ‘dark side’ of the Moon, has produced the best data taken so far from the largely unexplored area.

China intends to lớn launch a Chang’e-5 mission later this year.

It aims lớn bring 2kg of lunar surface material back khổng lồ Earth.

This will be the most complicated robotic space mission trung quốc has attempted but, if it’s successful, it will bring the first Moon samples back lớn Earth since 1976.

China is tracking Moon radiation levels & gathering soil samples ahead of plans lớn build a lunar base in the 2030s.

A canister strapped khổng lồ Chang’e-4’s lander was filled with seeds and silkworm eggs – part of an attempt lớn grow plants on the Moon.

The thiết đặt could be used by astronauts lớn sprout food on future lunar outposts.

The moon’s dark side is ideal for human settlements because it houses water in the form of ice.

More research is needed to determine how safe it would be for people lớn live there long-term.
