The lander and rover of the Chang'e-4 probe have resumed work for the 15th lunar day on the far side of the moon after "sleeping" during the extremely cold night. The Chang'e-4 probe, launched on December 8, 2018, made the first-ever soft landing on the Von Karman Crater in the South Pole-Aitken Basin on the far side of the moon on January 3, 2019. As of February 18, 2020, the rover has traveled 367.25 meters. It is the longest-working rover on the moon in human history. Not even the epidemic outbreak stopped astronautical engineers from working hard so that Chang'e-4 probe continues to work well.
