January 3, 2019, marks a historical event in the course of human history- China has softlanded a probe on the far side of the earth’s moon. Chinese government controlled media announced that the Chang’e-4 lunar lander had accomplished what no one has before.

Earlier Chinese space flights established a satellite network to guide the Chang’e-4 to the surface of the moon. The mission has three cameras which have been returning information to earth [1].
