Chang'e-3 lands on the Moon 14 December 2013

China successfully landed an unmanned vehicle on the Moon.

The Chang'e-3 mission is named after the goddess of the Moon in Chinese mythology and the rover vehicle is called Yutu (Jade Rabbit) after her pet.
Chang'e-3 landed on a volcanic site Sinus Iridum which is part of Mare Imbrium.

This landing makes China the third country after USA and Soviet Union to have landed unmanned spacecrafts to the Moon.

Good luck to them...
