Scientists in China have released an important first set of results from the Chang’e 4 lunar lander, revealing what appears to be material from the Moon’s mantle on its far side. Read More »
68 Days Ago The Chinese space program started 2019 with a major milestone when the Chang'e 4 lunar lander successfully touched down on the far side of the Moon.
67 Days Ago Early this year, China's Chang'e-4 lunar lander made history when it became the first spacecraft to touch down on the far side of the moon. Now, according to a study published in Nature, the lander's rover, Yutu-2, may have detected the first signs o...
74 Days Ago Nearly 50 years since man first walked on the moon, the human race is once more pushing forward with attempts to land on the Earth’s satellite.
66 Days Ago China's Chang'e 4 mission has made a major discovery: minerals that could be from beneath the surface of the moon. The lander spotted two unexpected mineral types which match what is believed to exist in the mantle.
68 Days Ago NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) passed over the intended landing site on April 22, and the agency just released images of Beresheet's final resting place. The post NASA Spots Remains of Beresheet Spacecraft on the Moon appeared first on ExtremeTech.
71 Days Ago The Moon is not only still active tectonically, but shrinking, NASA says, generating “moonquakes” as it slowly contracts. The new findings combined data from multiple Moon missions that took place nearly five decades ago with the LRO Mission, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter which is currently mapping out the surface of Earth’s satellite.
65 Days Ago New research suggests the Moon is shrinking. NASA scientists have used data from their Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera to look at wrinkles in the surface of the Moon which are formed as it loses heat and shrinks in size.
69 Days Ago NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) snapped multiple pictures of the Israeli Beresheet spacecraft’s impact site on the Moon’s surface. The images were captured in late April and published by the space agency on Wednesday, offering two different perspectives of the crashed robotic lunar lander.
