    China releases eerie images of the far side of the moon from its pioneering Chang'e-4 mission to mark one year anniversary of its launch

    China's space agency has released a huge batch of stunning images from the far side of the moon, revealing the beauty of the mysterious terrain. The high-resolution images were released on the agency's dedicated website and were enhanced by a NASA expert. Doug Ellison, who heads up the engineering camera team for the Curiosity Mars Rover at NASA, processed the images and posted them on Twitter.

    One image of the Chang'e-4 lunar lander with the immaculate tracks of the Yutu-2 rover was brought to life in colour using sophisticated computer software. The images were taken by Chang'e-4 lander's terrain camera and the panoramic camera on the Yutu-2 rover. The data dump measured more than 10GB and includes images taken over the course of its first year in operation.
