Many lunar orbiters had shown the moon's two sides were very different: the near side is relatively flat, while the far side is thickly dotted with impact craters.
The original Yutu rover from the 2013 Chang'e-3 mission to the lunar near side also took a similar break during its first lunar day in Mare Imbrium.
A rover dubbed Yutu-2 - the name of the moon goddess's pet, the "Jade Rabbit" - successfully separated from the lander and drove onto the moon's surface yesterday.
Humanity has sent dozens of probes to the near side of the moon, however, Chang'e 4 is the first spacecraft to reach the far side, which is more hard due to communication problems stemming from the fact that an entire relay system is necessary in order to pass messages to mission control.
The Von Kármán crater landing spot in the Aitken Basin is the oldest, deepest, crater on the moon's surface and the largest in the Solar System.
A video of the latest mission's landing - produced using more than 4,700 pictures taken by a camera on the probe - showed a "thicker layer of dust" offering "strong evidence" that its landing area is much older than the site where China's previous rover landed, Li said.
The China National Space Administration (CNSA) said the initial stage of the mission was a "complete success" after the lander and the rover sent back images via the Queqiao relay satellite that beams data back to Earth.
The moon is "tidally locked" to Earth in its rotation so the same side is always facing Earth. Its first unprocessed images made the moon look quite reddish, but the familiar gray of the moon is clearly seen in the exciting panorama shot.
The panorama also shows the edges of some of the science instruments onboard the Chang'e 4 lander itself. "We will conduct comparative research between the landing areas of Chang'e-3 and Chang'e-4", Li said.
"We hope Chang'e-4 could carry out unprecedented and more challenging tasks", said Wu Weiren, chief designer of China's lunar exploration program. The exploration might offer clues as to why the bombardment occurred, said Zou.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski says nothing is close as of now in terms of this potential swap of expiring contracts. Kanter, however, stopped short of requesting a trade during a recent meeting with general manager Scott Perry.
Streaming services such as Netflix are able to pay for access to Synamedia's initiative that will grant them the data in question. Real-time dashboards will display any abnormal activity detected including alerts and trend analysis.

The inflators can "explode with too much force and hurl shrapnel into drivers and passengers", according to the AP. That means 16.7 million faulty inflators out of 50 million under recall have yet to be fixed, so check your cars.

While nobody was injured, it's safe to say that driving a auto while blindfolded is definitely the opposite of a good idea. There were no injuries reported in connection with the crash, KTLA sister station KSTU in Salt Lake City reported.
From January 7 to 9, a US delegation was in Beijing for talks about trade issues amid an ongoing 90-day truce in the trade war. He added that China and the United States would "maintain close communication" on a potential next round of talks.
FBI probed whether Trump was Russian agent
Trump also plays a central role in a separate case in NY , where prosecutors have implicated him in a crime. The newspaper said it's not clear whether Mueller is still looking into that matter.
