China probe ‘lands on dark side of the MOON’ in space exploration BREAKTHROUGH

Chang’e 4 will perform several experiments while on the moon, including testing whether plants will grow in the low gravity environment, exploring the poles to find water or other resources, observing the interaction between solar winds and the lunar surface, and conducting the first lunar low-frequency radio astronomy experiment.

The mission left Xichang Satellite Launch Center on December 8 and was reported to have reached lunar orbit four days later.
