Storyline


China's lunar mission on the far side of the moon is a major achievement in science, said an Indian expert on Friday.

During an interview with China Central Television, Professor Rajkumar Pant from the Department of Aerospace Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, said that the Chang'e-4 mission will greatly contribute to aerospace science with its pioneering way of communicating.

"This is something very pioneering, because all the missions to the moon in the past have only landed on the bright side, and it's relatively easier because you can have a direct communication with your satellite. Here you have to communicate via a satellite sent earlier. So, establishing a two-way communication is not an easy task. It will be a major achievement to science," said Pant.

Chang'e-4 probe touched down on the far side of the moon on the morning of Jan. 3, and the lunar rover Yutu-2 drove onto the lunar surface late that night.

China announced Friday that the Chang'e-4 mission, which realized the first-ever soft-landing on the far side of the moon, was a complete success.
