China’s space agency said that the probe named the Chang’e-4 lunar probe landed on the far or ‘dark-side’ of the moon which has never been explored before.

The moon’s light side always faces Earth and so no one has ever been up close to see anything on the darkside.

The Probe landed near the Von Carman Crater near the South pole, and the China Space Agency intends to explore the moon with both a lander and a rover.

So more farside moon data will be coming in the future, and it is a first for the Chinese being the first to land on the far side of the moon.h
