Does anyone know If the colours on the video is the real colours or is it a filter? It looks a little brown to me.

NASA is full of crap and is well known for it.


Couldnt agree more

Congratulations to China.

Wouldn't it be nice if this just became all about science and not just an expansion of unhealthy competition into another arena? If only . . .

Its that hippy crap thats holding us back.


We need to expand and exploit the solar system.

If one day we are going to have colonies on the moon and mars and help solve our resource and popukation problems we need competition and a strong drive.

Instead of buying stuff that says, made in China, it will be, made on the moon now

LOL Made on the Moon Assembled by the Colonial China of the Moon

Saw on the news today about their rover starting to explore.
Chinese scientist said they had to make new optics for the cameras due to the temperature variations on the moon.
It has infra red plus many more different ones fitted to it.
Will be interesting to see what they discover there.

LRO view of the landing site.

It's a nice view of the landing area, but I don't see how the blog author could pin down the landing location so precisely by matching the landing images with LRO ones. I looked very hard for very long, but couldn't find any matching features. Seems like that bouldery crater in Chang'e images is quite small, and LRO images of that area are relatively low-res (1m or 1.5m per pixel, compared to 0.5m or even 0.25 we've seen from LRO).

Neither, I'm sure. Looks like imaging / decoding or transmission issue. A bit like your webcam showing weird colours when there's different light in the room.

I went to this site and zoomed in to the place marked on the image I linked to:

target.lroc.asu.edu...

After a bit or re-orientation of the first image in the landing gif I got this:



Open to interpretation but...

I thought the aliens that are based there told the US, and any other countries as a result, to leave and never come back......

Well that's what a lot of folk believe. Me, I believe in other non earth life forms, flying crafts that can do amazing things, etc. but the " please leave and never come back " thing is a bit far fetched considering the Chinese have now told the aliens to screw off.... or in the words of Apu ' why don't you try and stop me '

Any bets that we will suddenly see a plethora of high resolution images that NASA was somehow unable to supply?

I will take that bet. What are you wagering? That you will stop posting here if the Yutu rover does not send back pictures of an alien filling station, complete with refueling flying saucers? Or what?

I honnestly think NASA have purposly held back space exploration due to fear on what the plethora of resources just in our orbit would do to the rare earth market.

Screw NASA i say, they have been useless since the last moon landing.


The future is with Russia and China.
I hope russia go ahead with its nuclear propulsion plan for mars.

This is spot on, thanks! You can even see that huge boulder and its shadow in the LRO image.

So the lander and the rover are on the edge of a fairly large crater. I wonder if we'll get some nice pics of that.

Here is the landing image matched with rotated and resized LRO image (wms.lroc.asu.edu...):

Aleister here's an interesting instrument on the rover:

The rover carries a ground-penetrating radar on its underside, allowing for the first direct measurement of the structure and depth of the lunar soil down to a depth of 30 m (98 ft), and investigation of the lunar crust structure down to several hundred meters deep.

i'd say that's the most interesting instrument. likely to discover the most interesting things.

It was food how quickly they started once it had landed. No waiting around these little Chinese folk
