China's Chang'e-3 lunar probe
China hailed its lunar probe mission a success after the country's first moon rover and the landing vehicle that carried it there took photos of each other on the surface, state media reported.
The six-wheeled rover moved to a spot about 9 metres (10 yards) north of the landing vehicle on Sunday night, Dec. 15, China time and the pair took photos for about a minute, the official Xinhua News Agency reported. The colour images transmitted back to Earth showed the Chinese flag on the Yutu, or "Jade Rabbit" rover, named after a mythological creature.
