Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

As of 11th October 2020, The CNSA –China National Space Administration Belt and Road Initiative Lunar Mission on the One Hundred Kilometer 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 usher in the 23rd day…… With the sun spreading on the back of the moon again, Chang’e 4 lander and “Yutu 2” lunar rover successfully awakened and ushered in the 23rd day work period (the lander awakened at 11:56 on October 11th and the lunar rover at 18:57 on October 10). Up to now, Chang’e-4 has successfully spent 647 Earth days on the back of the moon.


 Based on the panoramic camera stitched images, DOM images and other data, during the day of this month, the “Yutu-2” lunar rover will drive toward the basalt distribution area or the impact crater area with high reflectivity, both of which are located northwest of the current detection point . In this travel route, there is a rock block with a diameter of about 30cm. The “Yutu-2” lunar rover will use an infrared imaging spectrometer to select an opportunity to perform spectral detection of the rock.
        

In addition, near the noon of the moon, it is planned to carry out the panoramic camera ring shooting, the infrared imaging spectrometer and the neutral atom detector will carry out related scientific detection work, and the lunar radar will carry out synchronous …

With the sun spreading on the back of the moon again, the Chang’e 4 lander and the “Yutu 2” lunar rover successfully awakened independently, ushering in the 23rd day of the day (the lander awakened at 11:56 on October 11, the moon The Lunar Rover  woke up at 18:57 on October 10). Up to now, Chang’e-4 has successfully spent 647 Earth days on the back of the moon.​

Based on the panoramic camera stitched image, DOM image and other data, during the day of this month, the “Yutu-2” lunar rover will drive toward the basalt distribution area or the impact crater area with high reflectivity, both of which are located northwest of the current detection point . In this travel route, there is a rock block with a diameter of about 30cm. The “Yutu-2” lunar rover will use an infrared imaging spectrometer to select an opportunity to perform spectral detection of the rock.

Position of rock block to be detected

In addition, near the noon of the moon, it is planned to carry out the panoramic camera ring shooting, the infrared imaging spectrometer and the neutral atom detector will carry out relevant scientific detection work, and the lunar radar will carry out synchronous detection during the driving. The latest scientific results will be released in time.

随着太阳光再次铺洒月球背面,嫦娥四号着陆器和“玉兔二号”月球车成功自主唤醒,迎来第23月昼工作期(着陆器于10月11日11时56分唤醒,月球车于10月10日18时57分唤醒)。截至目前,嫦娥四号已在月球背面顺利度过647个地球日。​

基于全景相机拼接影像、DOM影像等数据,在本月昼期间“玉兔二号”月球车将向玄武岩分布区域或反射率较高的撞击坑区域行驶,这两个位置均位于当前探测点西北方向。在此行进路线中,存在一枚直径约为30cm的岩块,“玉兔二号”月球车将利用红外成像光谱仪择机对该石块进行光谱探测。

此外,在接近月午时,计划开展全景相机环拍,红外成像光谱仪与中性原子探测仪将开展相关科学探测工作,行驶过程中测月雷达开展同步探测。最新科学成果将及时发布。
