” China’s Lunar Rover now has problems with lack of sunlight making it impossible to generate electricity with Solar Panels”

#AceWorldNews says on Saturday, China’s lunar rover, Yutu, went into its third planned hibernation amid ongoing technical problems with the robotic explorer, Xinhua News Agency has reported on Sunday.

The mechanical control issues affecting the vehicle has limited it to carrying out only fixed point observations during its third two-week-long lunar day.

Problems first emerged during the second period of dormancy in late January and were caused by the “complicated lunar surface.

” Now most of Yutu’s systems are turned off to conserve energy during the lunar night, when the lack of sunlight makes it impossible to generate electricity with solar panels.
