Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

As of 11th September 2020, The CNSA –China National Space Administration Belt and Road Initiative Lunar Mission on the One Hundred Kilometre diameter Von Karman Crater    Chang’e 4 lander and the “Yutu 2” lunar rover the Chang’e-4 lander and the “Yutu-2” lunar rover… Chang’e 4 lander and “Yutu 2” lunar rover awakened autonomously and entered the 22nd day of work] Today, the Chang’e 4 lander and “Yutu 2” lunar rover, which have been working on the back of the moon for 618 days…..

Once again Wake up independently by light, at 5:15 on September 12th and 11:54 on September 11th 2020, ushering in the 22nd day of work…..Based on data such as panoramic camera stitching images and DOM images, the “Yutu-2” lunar rover will drive toward the basalt or impact crater area with high reflectivity during the 22nd day of the month. The current detection point is about 83m from the nearest impact crater, and there is a degenerated impact crater with a diameter of about 160m on the south side of the impact crater of the One Hundred Kilometre diameter Von Karman Crater…..

Has the exploration continues  there is a degenerated impact crater with a diameter of about 160m on the south side of the impact crater. Both locations are located to the northwest of the current detection point. The “Yutu-2” lunar rover will conduct scientific exploration of these two impact craters during the day of this month. At that time, the panoramic camera, infrared imaging spectrometer, and neutral atom detector will be turned on one after another and the moon-measuring radar will simultaneously carry out detection during driving. Related scientific results will be released in time….

 

【“嫦娥”“玉兔”自主唤醒,进入第22月昼工作期】已在月球背面工作618天的嫦娥四号着陆器和“玉兔二号”月球车,再次受光照自主唤醒,分别于9月12日5时15分和9月11日11时54分,迎来第22月昼工作期。“玉兔二号”在第22月昼期间将向玄武岩或反射率较高的撞击坑区域行驶,并对其中两个撞击坑开展科学探测。届时,全景相机、红外成像光谱仪、中性原子探测仪将陆续开机,行驶过程中测月雷达同步开展探测。相关科学成果将及时发布。(来源:中国探月工程)
