On December 15, 2013 at 00:35 UTC China's first moon rover, "Yutu” (Jade Rabbit) separated from the lander several hours after the Chang'e-3 probe soft-landed on the lunar surface. The rover disconnected from the landing platform beginning about six hours after touchdown, severing electrical and mechanical connections before sliding off the lander on a ramp and driving on to the moon's surface.

The rover stands nearly 1,1 meter tall and has a mass of 140 kilograms.
