In a huge set back to China’s ambitious space programme, its lunar rover Yutu or the Jade Rabbit was declared dead after attempts to revive it failed, media reports said on Thursday.
The Jade Rabbit “could not be restored to full function”, BBC reported, citing state media, about China’s first moon rover that ran into mechanical problems last month.
Chinese scientists were not able to repair Jade Rabbit which has broken down on the surface of the moon.
