Jade Rabbit: China’s Moon Rover Dies
Jade Rabbit arrived on the Moon in December 2013 in the Chang’e-3 space mission, and has been exploring the surface in search of natural resources.
It made China the third country to reach the Moon after Russia and the US.
It has also been an active social media. Its final message said: “The Moon has prepared a long dream for me.”
The rover is named after Yutu, the pet rabbit of the Chinese Moon goddess Chang’e, in turn the namesake of the lunar mission.
