Here are some great news guys. A Chinese spacecraft called Chang’e 4 created history by becoming the first ever to successfully land on the dark side of the moon and we are damn enthusiastic about what pics they have in store for us to see.

But before that, you should learn that this is really a historic event since no one has ever maintained to land on the dark side of the moon.

As Per to the state media reports, the china’s spacecraft reached down at 10:26 AM local time (02:26 am GMT) and took ‘close-range’ photos of the dark side of the moon.  

Earlier, spacecraft have noted the far side of the moon but none have maintained to land on its surface up until now.

 You see, the dark side of the loaf is an uncharted, highland and rocky region which is why landing in this area is highly difficult. This is one of the main reasons why making a successful landing was a notable achievement for China.

The close-up pictures were shared by China’s National Space Administration (CNSA). In the photographs, you can look at close-ups of the moony surface that was captured.

This photo of the spacecraft making a close touch down on the unexplored place of the moon is surreal.
