BEIJING (CNSA PR) — The Chang’e-4 lander and the Yutu No. 2 lunar rover safely passed through the 14-day moonlight night environment, and were successfully “awakened” by the light at 20:26 on September 23 and 20:30 on the 22nd, enter the tenth month of the working period.

During the ninth month, “Yu Rabbit No. 2” discovered an unidentified gelatinous substance in the crater on the back of the moon. The lunar rover operator carefully designed the driving scheme and successfully carried out the science of the depth of the crater and the distribution of the spatter. Detection, we look forward to “Jade Rabbit No. 2” to bring us more surprises and scientific discoveries.

During the ninth month and night, the No. 4 lander and the Yutu No. 2 lunar rover were in a shutdown state. After the end of the moonlight, when the output power of the two solar panels meets the wake-up threshold, the two devices can power on some key equipment according to a predetermined procedure to resume communication with the ground. Subsequently, under ground control, a normal working state is established.
