Chinese Satellite Could Link World to Moon's Dark Side: Space Expert[Jun 19, 2018]

A satellite with a huge golden umbrella-shaped antenna is in an orbit more than 400,000 km from Earth, waiting for Chang'e-4, which is set to be the first ever probe to land softly on the Moon's far side. The relay satellite for Chang'e-4 will establish a communication link between the Earth and the far side of the Moon, and might serve probes from other countries, contributing to international scientific exploration.
