Finally, China has released some tangible information on the state of its Yutu Moon rover through official state media channels.

What a wonderful display of Chinese space program's openness, where are the guys who think China is more open then US private companies?

I am one of the people who believe that the Chinese are being extremely open about much of their space programme.   The Chinese have no interest is reporting "no news", they prefer to wait until there is hard news before announcing anything.   If you check the Chang'E 3 thread in the "live events" section on here then you will find the updates being discussed.

In addition, please remember that the Chinese are under no obligation to announce everything immediately simply to satisfy enquiring minds around the world.   Of course this leads to frustrations for some people but I have been following the Chinese space programme since the launch of Dongfanghong 1 in April 1970 and I certainly have no complaints about their coverage these days.   Even though I would like more, of course!
