An image captured by Orbiter Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter shows a Chang & 4 website from a distance of over 200 miles, appear both in the probe and the surrounding seabed.
We know that its moon is dead and dark, but this black-and-white image has always been a & # 39; drive that message home. Chang 4 in China will appear as a two-dimensional trout in the NASA design, which provides an amazing spectrum of scale. The Land has a fair section of uncontrollable landscapes, but something is very beautiful and bitter about the moon. It's just that … it's cool.

When the Chang spacecraft 4 went to the far side of the moon in the early January, it came to the surface of the skin of Von Kármán, a feature named in honor of Theodore von Kármán, a new scientist, the beginning of the republican time of the USA program. This major broadcast broadcast was created around 3.9 billion years ago, and measures approximately 186 kilometers (116 miles) in diameter.
On 30 January 2019, Orbiter Lunar Reconnaissance was introduced to the south-east site, and included it; phic at 330km (205 miles) distance from Chang 4 on land. The Chinese declaration appears as a small white dotag, and its mobile partner, the rover Yutu 2, is so small that it can not be seen.
The big, fresh look, is longer than the site; is located approximately 4 kilometers over, or 12,800 feet, and is approximately 600 meters (1,970 feet) deep, according to NASA. Looking across its & # 39; The wall shows the west wall of Von Kármán, a mountain range crater that extends over 3km (9,850 feet) above the floor of the pit.

A zoomed image (above) of the site is output to & # 39; show the more detailed view, which includes a large crack (just on the right of the arrows) near Chang 4 a & # 39; measuring approximately 440 meters (1,440 feet).
As an extra sport, this is not the first time NASA has been in & # 39; using his orbiter to see a Chinese man on the moon. In December 2013, the LRO saw the Chang 3 onshore and the Yutu rover from a distance of 150 kilometers (93 miles). Chang 3 came on land near the moon, but stopped working suddenly after going ashore.
