China 'lifts mysterious veil' by landing probe on far side of the moon
BEIJING (Reuters) - A Chinese space probe successfully touched down on the far side of the moon on Thursday, China's space agency said, hailing the event as a historic first and a major achievement for the country's space program.
The Chang'e-4 lunar probe, launched in December, made the "soft landing" at 0226 GMT and transmitted the first-ever "close range" image of the far side of the moon, the China National Space Administration said.
Good job China. Please continue space exploration
I am proud of you. China.

If the probe landed on the side of the moon that always faces away from the earth how are they able to communicate with it.
They are using a relay satellite. Solving the communication problem may be the most challenging part of mission.
