New Scientist reports that the Chinese space agency has received signals from Yutu (Jade Rabbit) and amateurs have also received a downlink signal, according to the Planetary Society. It is not yet clear if Yutu will be able to continue its mission."

      Good thing that there is still some life in it.
      I hope it will continue to work, at least until easter :-)

      Are there any information on what they plan to do in the future to protect equipment from the moon dust?

    It's dead, Jim.

    Or if it isn't, it soon will be, anyway.

    Which is probably a very good thing, considering that we may send live astronauts back to the moon at some point (assuming they know the average airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow).

    There were some fairly poignant comments on /. when the rover went silent.

    I'm thrilled that it's revived.

    Keep sciencing, Yutu, the people of Earth wish you longevity and success!
