Listening to the Big Bang: China’s lunar lander tunes in to ancient radio signals from across universe

  Chang’e 4 uses its unique position on the ‘quiet’ side of the moon to seek out energy emissions that originated at the time the universe was born...
   The far side of the moon is very quiet as there are no noises from artificial satellites...
Detecting low-frequency radio waves [from] there is a dream of astronomers across the world.
   Another set of those antennas – a kind jointly developed by China and the Netherlands  is carried on the relay satellite Queqiao, which stands between with the Earth and moon.
    The United States, Japan and the European Space Agency all made proposals to put a detector there, but China got there first...
The far side of the moon is the best place in the inner solar system to monitor low-frequency radio waves – the only way to detect certain faint ‘fingerprints’ that the Big Bang left on the cosmos,” Joseph Silk, professor of astronomy at Johns Hopkins University in the US, said in the scientific journal Nature earlier last year, when the US, Europe and China all detailed their plans for missions to the moon...

The rover and the lander of the Chang'e-4 probe have been awakened by sunlight after a long "sleep" during their first extremely cold night on the moon, the China National Space Administration announced on Thursday...
Temperatures on the moon's surface plummeted to minus 190 degrees celsius (-310 degrees Fahrenheit) during the probe's first lunar night..
A lunar day equals 14 days on Earth, and a lunar night is the same length. The Chang'e-4 probe switched to dormant mode during the lunar night due to the lack of solar power...
The lander was also equipped with an isotope thermoelectric cell and dozens of temperature data collectors to measure the temperatures on the surface of the moon during the lunar night...
A rover dubbed Yutu-2 (Jade Rabbit) after the moon goddess's pet also resumed operations "as planned" on January 29 and will perform experiments in the Von Karman Crater...
Scientific instruments on board China's previous Chang'e-3 moon mission, sent in late 2013, have withstood over 60 lunar nights and are still in operation

This timeless thread must be preserved!

The ultimate truth will soon be revealed.
Will our Chinese rover be recording the Stars and Stripes flag still fluttering on the airless Moon surface?
I can't wait to see it.

       China and NASA shared data about historic moon landing

   and NASA takes shots of China's Chang'e-4 Lander 'On Moon's Far Side'.

NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has been hanging out in a lunar orbit for a decade now and spotted Chang’e-4 and its rover Yutu-2, on January 30th and took shots of its landing site...

  Nasa's satellite [LRO] could not catch the precise moment of landing but took photos on above date...
     NASA shared information from a US satellite while China told the Americans about the latitude, longitude and time of the landing so they could take photos

    Since 2011, the US Congress has barred NASA or the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy from using federal funds "to develop, design, plan, promulgate, implement or execute a bilateral policy, program, order, or contract of any kind to participate, collaborate, or coordinate bilaterally in any way with China or any Chinese-owned company."

Exceptions are possible , but NASA must convince Congress and the FBI that the activity would "pose no risk of resulting in the transfer of technology, data, or other information with national security or economic security implications to China or a Chinese-owned company."
