BEIJING — China reached a milestone in space exploration on Thursday, landing a vehicle on the far side of the moon for the first time in history, the country’s space agency announced.

The landing of the probe, called Chang’e-4 after the moon goddess in Chinese mythology, is one in a coming series of missions that underscore the country’s ambitions to join — and even lead — the space race.

China landed another rover on the moon in 2013, joining the United States and the Soviet Union as the only nations to have carried out a “soft landing” there, but the Chang’e-4 is the first to touch down on the side of the moon that perpetually faces away from the Earth.

The mission “has opened a new chapter in humanity’s exploration of the moon,” the China National Space Administration said in an announcement on its website. The agency said the spacecraft landed at 10:26 a.m. Beijing time at its target on the far side of the moon.

Apparently there were some silkworms onboard, so the first life on the Moon!

Well, I guess the Soviets landed some turtles up there, not sure they made it back.

But that Japan, European Space Agency, and India have not come CLOSE to replicating the Apollo Program is the major giveaway that it was just a grandiose propaganda exercise.

Why is there light on the dark side of the moon?

Its just called the 'dark side' because you never see it from earth. A curious phenomenon, due to the Moon being 'tidally locked' with the Earth. As a result the Moon spins at the same rate that it rotates around the Earth. Bizarre, but true.

One of those 'fact is stranger than fiction' things, in the universe.

That looks about as real as the Apollo capsule. What's with the tinfoil and scotch tape always on fake Moon Landing craft?


I don't believe any of this shit, no matter what country is saying it.

They can't even agree if you can see the stars from space or not. Some say yes, some no.
They're not on the moon for sure and have never been. Not possible. How do you send radio waves 250,000 miles away?
