The Chang'e 4 mission is the first to land on the moon's far side.

The Chang'e 4 probe successfully performed the first soft landing on the Moon's far side on 3 January.

The 360-degree photo shows the grey moonscape, the lander and the rover.

The image from the China National Space Administration shows the first image of the moon's far side taken by China's Chang'e-4 probe.

Researchers have already completed a preliminary analysis of the lunar surface topography around the landing site based on the image, according to a statement released by China's Lunar and Deep Space Exploration (CLEP).

The spacecraft is equipped with radar, cameras, and spectrometers for studying the far side of the Moon.

Humanity has sent dozens of probes to the near side of the moon, however, Chang'e 4 is the first spacecraft to reach the far side, which is more hard due to communication problems stemming from the fact that an entire relay system is necessary in order to pass messages to mission control.

With the assistance of the relay satellite Queqiao (Magpie Bridge), the rover Yutu-2 (Jade Rabbit-2), the lander of the Chang'e-4 probe took photos.

The program has achieved five consecutive accomplishments, said CNSA, referring to Chang'e-1, Chang'e-2, Chang'e-3, a test craft for Chang'e-5 and Chang'e-4.

"From the panorama, we can see the probe is surrounded by lots of small craters, which was really thrilling", Li said.

The rover, which had been put in "standby" mode to protect it from the Sun's heat, was then switched on and, along with the Chang'e-4 probe, took pictures of the landing site and its surroundings.

"The information from the depths of the moon will be one of our focuses in the exploration".

The space administration also released a 12-minute video of Chang'e 4's landing utilizing more than 4,700 images taken by an onboard camera.

The lander succeeded in its first task of deploying its rover - named Yutu-2 - which has started exploring the Moon's Von Karman crater.

Now that Chang'e 4 snapped some footage, CNSA aims to conduct low-frequency radio astronomical observation, surveys of moon landforms, measure neutron radiation, and detect mineral composition.
