The China National Space Administration on Tuesday unveiled four images of the moon’s far side taken by the Chang’e-6 probe, including three taken during its landing and one from the panoramic camera capturing the landing site.

During its landing on moon’s far side, the Chang’e-6 probe not only collected lunar samples but also conducted a comprehensive investigation of the landing area using its payloads. The payloads successfully completed multiple scientific tasks and promptly transmitted the panoramic image captured in the landing area to the National Astronomical Observatories of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
