8. Chinese broadcaster CCTV has published pictures of the far side of the moon taken by its Chang'e 4 lunar lander and rover. They include a 360-degree panoramic image made up of 80 photos taken by the lander after it released the Jade Rabbit 2 rover. The Chinese space agency also released a 12-minute video of Chang’e 4’s landing earlier this month. China is using a relay satellite to communicate with the spacecraft and its rover because the far side of the moon cannot be reached by radio communications from Earth. - THE GUARDIAN
