News China's Chang'e-4 probe set to explore 'dark' side of the moon. This service may include material from Agence France-Presse (AFP), APTN, Reuters, AAP, CNN and the BBC World Service which is copyright and cannot be reproduced. The Chang’e-4 mission is to be followed by China’s first sample return mission, Chang’e-5, which could launch in late 2019 on a Long March 5 rocket.

"The previous measurements indicated different layers, but they don't seem to have come up with the level of detail about the physical properties of the subsurface that Chang'e-4 is producing," Professor Benedix said. The lunar far side, which is turned away from Earth, is more rugged than the familiar near side and has fewer "maria" - dark plains formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. Understanding the fine detail of what lies beneath individual sites could help build a picture of the whole Moon, she added. While the radar bottomed out at 40m, the Chang'e-4 scientists speculate that this section continues further down. We know a lot about the side of the Moon facing us, but no spacecraft had landed on the far side until the Chinese probe Chang'e-4 touched down just over a year ago. Underneath this layer lies a second 12m-thick section thought to be rocks and boulders ejected from the creation of a nearby crater 3.2 billion years ago.

"But we certainly didn't know what the structure was at this individual site," Dr Norman said. .css-8h1dth-Link{font-family:ReithSans,Helvetica,Arial,freesans,sans-serif;font-weight:700;-webkit-text-decoration:none;text-decoration:none;color:#FFFFFF;}.css-8h1dth-Link:hover,.css-8h1dth-Link:focus{-webkit-text-decoration:underline;text-decoration:underline;}Read about our approach to external linking.

The technique was first used in 1972 by the Apollo 17 orbiter to map the structure of the Moon's crust to a depth of about 1km under parts of the near side. Chang'e 4 is a lander-rover combination and will explore both above and below the lunar surface.

It is the most detailed cross-section of a series of meteorite impacts on the Moon ever produced, said the Chang'e-4 team. Observational data taken by Moon-orbiting spacecraft have been inconclusive as to the presence of mantle rocks on the surface. "It's been a Holy Grail for a long time to find something that represents direct mantle," Dr Norman said. Not only can finding basalt tell us about the age of the biggest impact on the Moon, it can also tell us about how the solar system formed. The Chinese Chang'e-4 rover may have confirmed a longstanding idea about the origin of a vast crater on the Moon's far side.

While that site was also a layer cake of loose dust and rocks, radar images bottomed out at 10 metres. It is here that scientists hope to uncover clues about the basin's age as well as discover new minerals unearthed by the force of the massive impact that created it billions of years ago. He added: "It is of the utmost importance to make progress towards unpacking the geology of the lunar far side, expanding our fundamental knowledge of the Moon's formation and the origin of the crustal asymmetry that exists between its near and far sides, and preparing future sample-return missions.". The rover's landing site lies within a vast impact depression created by an asteroid strike billions of years ago.

Video, Could postal voting upend US election? Marc Norman, a planetary geologist at the Australian National University, said the layering of dust, dirt and rocks is akin to what we've seen elsewhere on the Moon, where a process known as impact gardening has shaped and reshaped the surface. A number of nations have been eyeing off the far side for a space base since the discovery of ice in craters in the southern-most part of the basin.
