Abnormality found on China's moon rover (video CCTV)

Chinese scientists are preparing to overhaul its moon rover "Yutu", after an abnormality was detected as it went dormant.

The information was revealed by the country’s State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defence on Saturday.

It specified that the abnormity occurred due to "the complicated lunar surface environment", without giving further details. Chang’e-3 and the moon rover finished their work for a second lunar day, and both entered a lunar night mode. 

The abnormality emerged before the rover went into dormancy at dawn on Saturday, as the lunar night fell. Chang’e-3 successfully landed on moon on December 14th last year.
