Chinas first lunar rover has reportedly started functioning again, one day after officials declared it broken beyond repair. Chinese state news agency Xinhua reported Thursday that the Yuta (Jade Rabbit) spacecraft had awoken from its dormant state, with a spokesman saying that the rover stands a chance of being saved. The Jade Rabbit first malfunctioned in January, just as it was supposed to enter a two-week dormancy period. At first we were worried the rover could not withstand the low temperatures on the moon, because it entered its dormant state while in an abnormal state, Pei Zhaoyu, spokesman for Chinas lunar program, told Xinhua.
