China's Chang'e-4 probe resumes to work after lunar night
BEIJING, March 1 (Xinhua) -- The rover and the lander of the Chang'e-4 probe have resumed work after "sleeping" during their second lunar night on the far side of the moon.
The lander woke up at 7:52 a.m. Friday, and the rover, Yutu-2 (Jade Rabbit-2), awoke at about 10:51 a.m. Thursday. Both of them are in normal condition, according to the Lunar Exploration and Space Program Center of the China National Space Administration...

BEIJING, March 3 (Xinhua) -- China will gradually open data collected by the Chang'e-4 lunar probe to the world, the country's lunar program chief designer said.
Wu Weiren, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, made the statement in his capacity as a member of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, the country's top political advisory body, on the sidelines of its annual session, which opened on Sunday.
The Chang'e-4 probe made the first-ever soft landing on the Von Karman Crater in the South Pole-Aitken Basin on the far side of the moon on Jan. 3.
Wu said both the lander and the rover have been woken up from a "sleep mode" and are now collecting new data.
Wu added that China plans to launch the Chang'e-5 probe later this year to collect samples from the moon and bring them back to the earth and to launch a probe in 2020 to orbit, land and rove on Mars.

"The design duration of the Chang'e-4 landing module is six months, and that of the Yuytu-2 lunar rover is three months. Judging by their current state, they will work much longer than the design lifetime," he said.

The image with the red circle is from the small camera in the infrared spectrometer instrument.  It takes an image to document its target.  The circle is the field of view of the spectrometer.  The first Yutu took measurements at 4 locations, all soil targets.

看!师父@中国探月工程 给我画了一张我的行车路线图。
Look! Master @CLEP I drew a map of my driving route.
在月球上的第1个白天,我走了44.185米,漂了个移,给四姐拍了一张照片。
第2个白天,我走了75.815米,又给四姐拍了张照。
On the first day of the moon, I walked 44.185 meters, drifted and took a picture of the four sisters.
In the second day, I walked 75.815 meters and took a photo of the four sisters.
可不是在到处玩儿,测试行走性能也是我的工作之一。走过的每一片区域,我都会用相机拍下地形地貌,还会分析土壤和岩石里的矿物成分,等这些数据传回地球了,再给你们看看。
It's not like playing around, testing walking performance is one of my work. In every area I walked, I used the camera to take pictures of the topography, and also analyzed the minerals in the soil and rocks. When the data was transmitted back to Earth, I would show it to you.
因为没有空气,我的脚印会和阿姆斯特朗、前辈@月球车玉兔 的足迹一起,在月球上保留至少几十万年,想想就有点激动。
Because there is no air, my footprints will be kept on the moon for at least several hundred thousand years along with the footprints of Armstrong, the predecessor @月球车玉兔, and I am a little excited to think about it.

April 3rd - now Yutu 2 should be snoozing, taking its noon-time siesta of the 4th lunar day.  No information I have seen about activities. The last two images released at dawn on day 4 were taken near sunset, presumably on day 3 (according to shadows).
