Chinese scientists have reconstructed the descent trajectory of the Chang'e 4 lunar probe and determined its precise landing site on the far side of the moon in a move that could bolster further deep space exploration. Using high-resolution topographic data obtained by the Chang'e 2 lunar probe and images taken by Chang'e 4 during its descent and exploration, researchers reconstructed the landing process including how it avoided obstacles autonomously.
