Chang'e-3 Lands on the Moon and Deploys Yutu Rover

China Lands Chang'e-3 On The Moon, VOA (with CCTV Video)

"Chinese state media say China has successfully landed a space probe on the moon, in the first lunar "soft landing" in nearly four decades. The Chang'e-3 lunar probe blasted off earlier this month from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in China's southwestern Sichuan province. It carried with it a moon rover, known as "Jade Rabbit."

Keith's update: The Yutu rover has been deployed and is driving on the lunar surface.
