China's lunar rover, Yutu-2, or Jade Rabbit-2, left the first ever "footprint" from a human spacecraft on the far side of the moon late at night on Thursday, after it separated from the lander smoothly. The process was recorded by the camera on the lander and the images were sent back to the Earth via the relay satellite "Queqiao", the China National Space Administration (CNSA) announced. Launched on Dec. 8, 2018, China's Chang'e-4 lunar probe, comprising a lander and a rover, landed on the far side of the moon on Thursday morning. (Xinhua)

This handout image taken on 3 January 2019 shows the moon surface after China's robotic lunar probe Chang'e-4 landed at the preselected landing area on the far side of the moon. A Chinese spacecraft has become the first ever to land on the far side of the moon, according to state-run media, in a giant leap for human space exploration. The China National Space Administration (CNSA) landed the robotic probe Chang'e 4 in the unexplored South Pole-Aitken basin, the largest, oldest, deepest, crater on the moon's surface. Early reports of a successful landing sparked confusion after state-run media China Daily and CGTN deleted tweets celebrating the mission. China Daily's tweet said: "China's Chang'e 4 landed on the moon's far side, inaugurating a new chapter in mankind's lunar exploration history." Official confirmation of the landing came two hours later via state broadcaster CCTV, which said the lunar explorer had touched down at 10.26am (2.26am GMT). The Communist party-owned Global Times also said the probe had "successfully made the first-ever soft landing" on the far side of the moon. An image tweeted by the English-language version of CCTV showed the first close-up shot of the far lunar surface. (Imaginechina via AP Images)
