A View from the Far Side

The Chinese Chang’e-4 spacecraft made the first successful landing on the Moon’s far side on 3 January. This image from the landing site inside Von Karman crater was taken by a camera on the lander. It shows the desk-sized, six-wheeled Yutu 2 (Jade Rabbit 2) rover as it was moving off the lander.
