Space travel and planetary research are some of the most exciting aspects of the space race. Landing on the moon, in particular, has been a topic of debate t nations looking to gain an upper hand in space studies. As per recent news, China might just get a boost in this race. Yes, we are talking about China’s moon landing news. China has reportedly managed to land a spacecraft on the far side of the moon. While others have landed on moon prior to this, landing on the far side of the lunar surface is certainly a first.
This achievement by the nation apparently brings with it an opportunity to study the lunar body like never before. As per reports, the robotic probe for Chang’e 4 took off on December 8, 2018. It landed on the far side of the moon on January 3, 2019.
Naturally, scientists and researchers in different parts of the world are ecstatic at this advancement. However, it seems like the Twitterati is singing a different tune. Many on Twitter are calling China’s moon landing a fake claim. This is what some of the tweets on the same went like:
