The far east is rapidly building expertise in the field of unmanned space exploration, the incredible success of Japan's Hayabusa mission is a case in point. China's space agency have recently released photographs from their second lunar orbiter, Chang'E-2, and they are breathtaking.
Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of Sinus Iridum. The image was taken at 19 km altitude from the lunar surface. The largest crater is about 2 km in diameter and 450 m in depth.
Chang'E-2 was launched in October this year, and took 5 days to reach the Moon. It orbited the moon at an altitude of 100km, and is performing a survey of the lunar surface in preparation for the third phase of China's lunar exploration project - Chang'E-3 will actually land on the moon.
