Figure 8

The descent sequence of the lander and the rover under the support of Queqiao (the picture on the left top was taken by the descent camera of the lander). Under the support of Queqiao, the lander carried the rover and landed successfully on the surface of the far side of the Moon. After landing on the Moon, the camera on the lander took the first near-distance picture of the lunar far side surface, and the picture was sent back to ground stations via Queqiao.
