China's far-side moon rover Yutu 2 has woken up from its nap as planned, according to Chinese media reports.

BEIJING (AP) — China on Friday broadcast pictures taken by its rover and lander on the moon's far side, in what its space program hailed as another triumph for the groundbreaking mission to the less-understood sector of the lunar surface. The pictures on state broadcaster CCTV showed the Jade Rabbit 2 rover and the Chang'e 4 spacecraft that transported it on the first-ever soft landing on the far side of the moon, which always faces away from Earth. The pictures were transmitted by a relay satellite to a control center in Beijing, although it wasn't immediately clear when they were taken.

A Chinese spacecraft sent back the first photos of the far side of the Moon last week.

The pictures were transmitted by relay satellite to a control center in Beijing.

While China and India could soon overtake America as the world’s largest economies, the US has got to come to terms with this and co-operate with China as it does with Russia on space exploration.
