China's lunar probe Chang'e-3 Lunar Rove land on the moon at 9.12pm, making China 3rd country to land a craft on the celestial body. During six-wheeled moon rover, Yutu  (Jade Rabbit) will take images, examine rock samples and map the lunar subsurface with its ground penetration radar.

It was the first lunar soft landing by a prob sent from earth in nearly 4 decades. United States made three failed attempts before its spacecraft successfully landed on moon while Soviet Union made 11 attempts. China's Beijing Aerospace Control Center was able to hit the bull's eye on the first try.
