China has successfully launched a lunar probe which the country hopes to land on the far side of the moon.
China used a Long March 3B rocket to launch the lunar mission into space at the southwestern Xichang satellite launch centre early Saturday, according to Xinhua News Agency. It also carries seeds as part of a "miniature biosphere" experiment to grow vegetables in the lunar soil.
It will also perform radio-astronomical studies that, because the far side always faces away from Earth, will be "free from interference from our planet's ionosphere, human-made radio frequencies and auroral radiation noise", space industry expert Leonard David wrote on the website Space.com.

The 140 kg Chang'e-4 rover.
Chang'e-3, launched in 2013, was the first Chinese spacecraft to soft-land on and explore an extraterrestrial object.
It is indicated that China has ambitious plans in space: by 2020, the country plans to send a moon Rover to build by 2022 own space station and send to 2029 research mission to Jupiter.
And as no lander or rover has ever touched the particular area of moon, China grabs the top spot as the first nation to explore the area.
Actually, China has conducted four lunar probe missions since 2004. The scientific instruments on its lander are still operating, making Chang'e-3 the longest working man-made probe on the moon. The spacecraft re-entered the earth's atmosphere at a speed of about 11.2 km per second.
"She's heading to a place that has a special importance for the study of the moon". Its program also suffered a rare setback past year with the dialed launch of its Long March 5 rocket.
