For the first time in the history. The probe on a reverse side of the Moon


The moon rover of Chanje-4, besides scientific missions, is designed to assign the status of the space superstate, the second after the USA, to China. The Chinese Chanje-4 spacecraft for the first time in the history of mankind successfully landed on a reverse side of the Moon within the Lunar program of China. The moon rover already sent the first photos of the satellite of Earth. Problems of the platform also include soil studying, check of a possibility of establishment of the radio telescope and carrying out an experiment on creation of the closed ecosystem by means of larvae of a silkworm and plants. The correspondent.net tells details. Chanje-4 made the space superstate of China the Chinese scientific station Chanje-4 for the first time soft-landed on a reverse side of the Moon which is never visible from Earth and is not studied. China started Chanje-4 in the evening on December 7, 2018. The station is a part of the lunar program of the People's Republic of China and is designed to assign to China the status of the space superstate - the second after the USA. The probe consists of the landing device and a moon rover. Are built in it: the video camera, geological, the radar for studying of lunar soil, an infrared spectrometer for studying of minerals, the device for studying of impact of solar wind on the surface of the Moon. Lunar landing happened on January 3 at 10:26 on the Chinese time in a crater the Pool the South Pole - Aitken is a huge ancient shock crater - the biggest on the Moon and one of the biggest in the Solar system. "In the history of a research of the Moon the mankind on Thursday opened the new page when the first-ever researcher of a reverse side of the Moon sat down in a point of the appointment after the 26-day travel", - China Daily writes. As the Chinese state mass media report, Chanje-4 reached an orbit of the Moon on December 12, the station came to a settlement orbit on December 30. At the height about eight kilometers the device estimated the locations, then in 100 meters from the surface of the Moon slowed down for the analysis of possible obstacles in a way and made lunar landing. Voyagers the first left the Solar system Direct link between the probe and Earth is impossible as between them there is the Moon, however the Queqiao relay satellite which is successfully started in June is responsible for signal transmission with Chanje-4. Chanje-4 became the first spacecraft which soft-landed on a reverse side of the Moon. Disembarkation on the satellite of Earth took place under cover of a secret, as well as the majority of sobitiya in China. However the Chinese national space administration published the first pictures taken by Chanje-4 from the surface of the Moon. A scientific mission of Chanje-4 the Reverse side of the Moon is often called dark, but in fact it is that part of a lunar surface which is not visible from Earth. The moon and Earth rotate synchronously therefore from our planet the surface only of one of satellite hemispheres is visible. On a reverse side of the Moon also more dense soil there are more craters. Problems of the platform and a moon rover include photography of a surface of the satellite of Earth and also soil studying. Besides, the mission will check a possibility of conducting radio-astronomical observations - it is supposed,
