Haven't seen anything about this on here yet. So, China landed a probe and rover on the Moon yesterday. Interesting stuff. The landing was successful, and the rover has deployed successfully. And some neat pictures to come, these earlier shots aren't the full HD pics that will come later. But here are a few early ones.

Hopefully this will light a fire under our apathetic citizenry to FUND SUCH THINGS. Do you have any idea how open china will be with their findings?
