LRO view of Chang'e-4 and Yutu

Arrows point to the most recent lunar lander, China’s Chang’e-4, and Yutu, a small rover it deployed on the far side of the Moon, in this image from Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. Several new lunar missions are scheduled for launch in the next few years. Despite decades of lunar missions, landing on the Moon still isn’t easy, as the recent failure of India’s Vikram lander demonstrated. [NASA]
