China launches lunar probe




....but will it tweet?


Thanks Obama!


I mean, do you even tweet, probe?


This is grand and all (I like remote landers and probes), but what's the deal with the cheesey lunar surface artist rendition? Shooting stars in a vaccuum?


It'll tweet only over Hong Kong or Macau.


Good day for non-US space science all around:

The more the merrier!


It still puts a lump in my throat to watch multi-stage separations like that. Way to go Earth! Further!


My Chinese is, er, rusty. Can anyone who knows the language tell me what they're saying? Sounds rather repetitive.
