China Just Released Photos Of Its Historic First Moon Landing And They Are Incredible
China's Lunar Exploration program just shared the pictures of their first ever moon landing with public. The landing took place back in the year 2013, when China set its rover, called Yutu (Chinese for "Jade Rabbit"), down in one of the largest craters in the solar system, Mare Imbrium.
Imbrium created history by setting the record for operating longer than any lunar rover before it. Look at the image here. We have more such images for you ahead.

Here's a picture of Yutu making tracks across the moon's surface, which it did for about a month after touchdown before losing the ability to move. This looks so good.
Even after losing the ability to move, Yutu continued to send information for months, and last October, it broke the record for operating longer than any other lunar rover in history.

#2 Chinese Engineers
You get to see all these pictures thanks to the hard work of Chinese Engineers. They placed the cameras on both the lander (shown above) and the Yutu rover, which took this photo on Jan. 13, 2014 - just two days before the rover's motor failed and it lost mobility.
Check out another picture ahead.
#1 The Discoveries
So far, the Rover has done some very good discoveries. It discovered that Mare Imbrium, one of the largest craters in the solar system, is compositionally different from the locations where NASA and Russia have landed their lunar missions.
It also found evidence of 9 distinct rock layers beneath the crater's surface. All in all, this has been a brilliant venture by China. A successful trip to moon we must say!
