On 4 January 2019, the World News Daily Report (WNDR) published a recycled version of an earlier article reporting that a Chinese lunar rover had found no evidence of American moon landings.

"With the communication assistance of the relay satellite Queqiao, the lander sent back the first-ever close-up photograph of the Moon's far side, opening a new chapter in lunar exploration".

Chinese websites released several images captured during the lander's descent, and then revealed several more pictures taken of the mission's six-wheeled rover as it drove down a ramp and onto the lunar surface.

Despite the name of Pink Floyd's best-selling album, the side of the moon you can't see isn't always dark. With Chang'e 4 mission, China becomes the first country to ever successfully reach the far side of the moon. After receiving the order, Yutu-2, atop the probe, extended its solar panel, stretched out its mast and started to drive slowly to the transfer mechanism, said the Beijing Aerospace Control Centre.

Chang'e-4 is carrying six experiments from China and four from overseas, including low-frequency radio astronomical studies - aiming to take advantage of the lack of interference on the moons' far side.

The rover will also conduct mineral and radiation tests, the China National Space Administration has said, according to state news agency Xinhua.

China's space community is taking pride in the successful landing, which posed technical challenges because the moon blocks direct communication between the spacecraft and its controllers on Earth. Chang'e 4 also has sent back images taken with a topographical camera. Its success provided a major boost to China's space program.

The collection of data from the invisible side of the moon began with the Jadehase 2 robotic vehicle, the vehicle carried by the Chinese satellite Chang'e 4, which for some hours has been laid on the moon side that we cannot see. China last year launched more rockets into space than any other nation and plans another moon landing, the Chang-e 5, later this year.
