I checked the link out and was astonished at how much information that fella had on the Chinese space program. It was quite interesting but, he still didn't divulge all the known facts that's been revealed in the past 6 mos. I guess they're keeping that under their hats. I guess when your being recorded on the air , you must improvise and be vague?

The LRO has imaged, if you want to call it that, the Chang'e 3 lander and the Yutu rover.
