NOTE: I have been made aware that what I’ve published here is in fact the Chang’e 4 lander and not the Cube. I sincerely apologize for this error. I’m embarrassed af. Forgive me.
I just did a mega-crop from the 25MB tiff file available at Arizona State University’s website devoted to the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. Go to www.lroc.asu.edu… and there is a topographical map and a photo you can zoom in on.
So, wow, it is truly a thing and a remarkable one at that!
Props to the ATS crew for finding this.
As French and Saunders used to say, “Absolutely Fabulous!”
Bummer that it will take 3 months for Yutu 2 to get over there, but after investigating the specifics of the rover, it is an unfortunate necessity.
I do hope that the Chinese pause after each leg and send pictures as they get closer and closer. That would be really nice.
But, damn, look at that thing!
