Around the probe, which made a soft landing on the dark side of the moon there are many craters of different sizes.

Such relief is in the center background Pocket can create problems WiTu Lunokhod-2.

China national space administration CNSA has published some of the images sent by the probe Chang’e-4 to the Ground via relay satellite, Cacao.

One of the published images – panoramic picture in 360 degrees, taken by the camera attached to the top of the lander Chang’e-4, was reported by the Deputy Director of the National astronomical Observatory of China, the commander of ground application system of Chang’e-4 Whether Chungli.

“On the panoramic image shows that the probe is surrounded by many small craters that is really awesome,” he said.

One of the nearby WiTu from Lunokhod 2 crater has a diameter of about 20 meters and a depth of about 4 meters. This rugged terrain presents great difficulties for planning the travel route of Lunokhod, said Lee Chunli.

He also noted that compared to the area of the front side of the moon, where it landed on the moon probe Chang’e-3″ in the surrounding Chang’e-4 in area of little stones, which suggests that the lunar landing area Chang’e-4 could be over.

According to him, Chang’e-4 landed in the area at the height minus approximately 6000 meters. The deepest area on the moon, where the height is minus 9100 meters, is about 700 kilometers South from the probe.

“Data from the depths of the moon are one of the main aspects of our attention to sensing of Earth’s natural satellite,” said Lee Chunli.
