Does this lunar soil match my outfit?
Landing on the moon is definitely a big deal; no “kind of” involved. So of course it didn’t surprise us to learn that China eagerly broadcast its lunar arrival via all available channels last night.
The country’s rover/lander duo touched down on the moon’s surface and quickly broadcast selfies of one another to the world at large as President Xi Jinping looked on. It seemed like a smooth operation; the rover simply had to turn around first to make sure everyone could see its bright red flag pin.
