China’s Moon Mission Resumes After Recent Glitch

According to a report by Gizmodo, China's mission to explore the far side of the moon has now entered its seventh lunar day, with the Chang’3 lander and Yutu 2 rover resuming activities despite a recent communication problem with a relay satellite.

The Lunar Exploration and Space Program Center of the China National Space Administration said that the Chang’3 lander and Yutu 2 rover were now both in “normal working condition," after entering into hibernation mode back on June 9th.
