The information given by this probe is significant as till date all the manned and unmanned flights to moon have landed on the side which faces the earth but this Chang'e-4 is exploring the far side which is both rugged and unexplored.
The controllers also took the time to deploy the rover's solar panels and verify that the mission's scientific payload (altogether, seven instruments and cameras) were all in working order.
The probe was launched from China's Xichang Satellite Launch Center and reached the lunar orbit in 12 December. The rover, which was seen in early photos having just taken its first strides on the Moon, is shown moving farther away from the lander's camera.

In recent years, each significant achievement made by China's space industry has drawn global attention.
The satellite can stay in its orbit for a long time due to its relatively low fuel consumption, as the earth's and moon's gravity balances its orbital motion, said Zhang Lihua, chief designer of the satellite.

Even if the experiments with the satellite prove that we can not feasibly conduct radio astronomy on the far side of the Moon, the mission is certain to yield valuable scientific information. "This will negate the key advantage of the far side for radio astronomy, being free of radio interference from Earth".
The pioneering landing highlights China's ambitions to rival the U.S., Russian Federation and Europe in space. The moon Mission is a between step to the long-term objective of China "in every aspect of a space", as formulated by the Beijing leadership as early as 2016.
