China's Chang'e 4 probe has started carrying out a series of scientific research tasks involving multiple countries and organizations since it landed on the far side of the Moon on 3 January, CNSA announced on 10 January. A neutron radiation detector aboard the lander, developed by Germany, and a neutral atom detector on the rover, developed by Sweden, have both switched on for test operations. Queqiao carries a low-frequency radio astronomical instrument developed by the Netherlands. The radioisotope heat source is a collaboration between Chinese and Russian scientists. A micro-imaging camera by Saudi Arabia aboard the micro satellite is orbiting the Moon and has sent back a photo in June 2018, capturing Earth and the Moon together. NASA has offered the orbital data of its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) and the Chinese side has provided the landing timing and location, CNSA said.
