UPDATED Chang'e 3 Rover Is On The Moon

Hey Space Placers!

UPDATE: Yutu rover has separated from the lander and is on the Moon

UPDATE: Live coverage has ended. See pictures of lunar surface and the landing here .

China's rover Jutu is on the Moon in Sinus Iridum according to Twitterverse and Chinese media.

Live feed and updates here.

I am impressed and glad that China has chosen to share in the excitement of the first landing on the Moon in 37 years  - Russia was the last to do so in their Luna series.

The rover is set to depart from the lander tomorrow.

Congratulations to China. All success to Jutu.
