Chang'e 4

Dalhousie:
Mildly surprised that that nobody has mentioned the Chan'e 4 mission currently  on the way to the moon for the first landing attempt since the successful Chang'e 3 landing in 2013.

Chang'e 4 will attempt a lunar far side landing and deploy a rover.  There is also a relay satellite in EM-L2, Quegiao, already in place.  This nice little video shows the whole mission sequence https://pbs.twimg.com/ext_tw_video_thumb/1071741340134850560/pu/img/kXwG9c9d_iYtGVjd?format=jpg&name=small

Very much looking forward to seeing how this turns out. China will have boots on the ground before long.

At least someone is forward looking.  :(

Well, congrats to the scientists and engineers involved. I wish them all the best on this venture. I can't wait to see the results!

And the great thing about sending spacecraft to the Moon: you don't have to wait months or years for them to get there.
