Chinese spacecraft hoping to arrive at the dark side of the moon has entered a moon after a 240,000-mile journey lasting 110 hours.
- Chang-4 was successful in a stable moon 80 miles above The surface
- means that the probe will land on the dark side of the moon in January
- The mission communicates with the earth via a relay satellite called Queqiao
- It will make a "softening" in southern Polish Aitken basin Von Karman crater  The crater is so deep that one can believe that stones can never be found.
China's mission to the dark side of the moon has successfully embarked on a stable circulation around our natural satellite.
The 240,000-mile (385,000 km) journey took 110 hours to complete and saw Chang & E-4 into an elliptical orbit 80 miles above the surface.
It is expected to land on the dark side of the moon at some point in early January, but the country's secret space agency has not announced a specific date.

Chang 'e-4 (the artist's impression depicted) has today entered the Munban and will be the first rover landing on the other side of the moon surface . A landowner helps to steer the spacecraft to the dark side of the moon
The backbone on the probe fired on December 12 to stabilize the spacecraft and slow it down.
Chang 4 will target the southern Polish Aitken basin Von Karman crater, the largest in the entire 15,000 miles (24,000 km) solar system over and eight miles deep.
It took off from Xichang satellite launch center in Sichuan in southwest China at 6:30 GMT on December 7 on a long March 3B rocket.
It is expected to carry out a "landing" and land on the moon after completion of 27 days of travel through space.
Exploring the great divot on the surface of the moon can throw new light on its history and geology by collecting stones that have never seen before.
Chang 4 has been described as" hugely ambitious "and ruled as a sign of China's growing intentions to compete with space exploration of the United States, Russia and the EU
It will visit an unspoiled region on the moon's surface called the South Pole-Aitken Basin (pictured) located in The south of the earth's multicolor
Chang 4 has been described as "hugely ambitious" and ruled as a sign of China's growing intentions to compete with space exploration ability at the US, Russia and the EU.
In order to facilitate communication between Earth's controllers and the Chang's 4 mission, China launched a relay satellite called Queqiao on May 20th and is now placed in operational circulation about 40,000 miles beyond the moon.
CHINESE RELEASE DEVELOPMENT  China landed its Yutu, or "Jade Rabbit" robs the moon five years ago and plans to send its Chang's 5-probe this year.
Change-5 is the follow-up of the current mission and comes back to earth with the first samples of the moon since 1976.
The Asian superpower also contemplates a manned lunar mission.
On September 29, 2011, China launched Tiangong 1.
December 14, 2013  China's Chang 3 became the first object of soft ground on the moon since Luna 24 1976
A second space lab, Tiangong 2 , launched on September 15, 2016.
A major basic permanent space station would be the third and final phase of Project 921.
The first part, called Tiangong 3, is scheduled to start after Tiangong 2.
The Chinese the space station is scheduled to be completed by 2020. 
China's plans for its first unprocessed Mars exploration program could take place sometime between now and 2033 followed by a crew phase in 2040-2060.
Its payload will contain materials necessary for experiments, including a frequency-frequency spectrometer, a panoramic camera and moon-radar radar, including
The probe and the explorer will use Queqiao to get their findings back to China. When landing on the dark side of the moon, it required its own satellite to send back information.
This will be the primary communication form between the Earth and spacecraft.
The probe and explorer will use Queqiao to get their findings back to China. When landing on the dark side of the moon, it required its own satellite to be able to send information back.
China's latest mission closely follows the impact of NASA's InSight spacecraft on Mars on Monday, at a location less than 400 miles (640 kilometers) from American Rover Curiosity, the only other work robot on Mars.
Chang'E-4 launched from Xichang's Satellite Launch Center in Sichuan in South-West China at 6:30 GMT on December 7th
