Yutu 2 lunar rover, (Jade Rabbit 2), has driven 163 meters on the far side of the Moon (44.2 on first lunar day; 75.8 on second lunar day; 43 m on third lunar day) and is expected to work longer than its designed three-month life time. Both the rover and the lander of the Chang'e 4 lunar probe switched to a dormant mode on 13 March as the extremely cold lunar night fell, according to the Lunar Exploration and Space Program Center of the China National Space Administration.
