"UHF Satcom @uhf_satcom · Nov 7

Again nothing from the Chinese Yutu rover or Chang'e'3 lander on X-Band - seems odd unless its all been turned off !"
---------------------


Tweet from https://twitter.com/uhf_satcom says no contact at all with Yutu or its lander this lunar day.

Fantastic; thanks for the heads-up! A good look at the big boulder at last.

Edit: and that amazing 'self-portrait' of Yutu reflected in the lander's mirror:

Impressive as the achievement is, and as much as I'm cheering for more UV imaging from the Moon, it's not the first galaxy imaged from the Moon. The Apollo 16 Carruthers camera obtained detailed UV images of the Large Magellanic Cloud and UV detection of at least NGC 55.

Yutu is still alive! I hadn't heard anything for months.

------------------------------------------------
UHF Satcom ‏@uhf_satcom · Sep 27
Yutu Lunar Rover back on the air downlinking on 8462.046MHz - good signals! Carrier only, no sign of modulation.
-------------------------------------------------

That was before the eclipse. It was not transmitting after the eclipse.

Nearly 2 years alive on the surface.
