China is supposed to land a rover on the Moon soon (2013). This will be the first landing on the Moon from any nation in quiet a few decades - if none of the Google-Lunar-X-Price teams is faster, of cause.
The landing is going to happen as part of the Chang'e 3 mission. There are some pictures, very few bits and pieces of information and only very little papers about the details (design etc.) of this mission.
Does anyone know a good source of information? I am really interested in the rover, its design, its deployment, its method of control and its instruments. If there is any good stuff out there in Chinese - and if someone here actually speaks Chinese - could you give an overview of what is going on right now? What is the current status of when it will be launched exactly?
