Chang'e-4 communicates with Earth via a relay satellite in orbit around the moon, something that adds another level of complexity and risk, according to Jim Head, a researcher at Brown University who worked with Chinese colleagues to analyze Chang'e-4's landing site.
The landing is the latest step for China in its race to catch up with Russian Federation and the United States and become a major space power by 2030.
Chang'e 4, a combined lander and rover, will make astronomical observations and probe the composition of the soil.
The BBC's John Sudworth in Beijing says the propaganda value of China's leaps forward in its space programme has been tempered by careful media management.
Pink Floyd has a lot to answer for when it comes to popular ideas about the moon, but here's how to always keep your lunar sides straight.
The landing is being seen as a major milestone in space exploration.
Chang'e-4 was launched on 8 December 2018 from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Sichuan province. It was then directed to lower itself toward the Moon, being careful to identify and avoid obstacles, Chinese state media say.
The spacecraft landed in the South Pole-Aitken basin, the oldest known impact zone.
But while Beijing claimed the landing "opened a new chapter in human lunar exploration",. He also assured that the structures were definitely not by natural means, and suggested that the far side of the moon could be actually an alien base.
"The far side of the moon is a rare quiet place that is free from interference of radio signals from Earth", mission spokesman Yu Guobin said, according to Xinhua.
Several conspiracy theorists have started arguing that the Chinese lunar mission to the far side of our natural satellite may discover enormous craters on the moon's surface which are actually the result of NASA's secret bombings. Previous reports estimated the probe would land some time between January 1 and 3, but officials may have narrowed it down to a more precise time frame.
In 2003, China became the third country to put a man in space with its own rocket after the former Soviet Union and the United States, and in 2017 it said it was preparing to send a person to the moon.
"It's a small step for the rover, but one giant leap for the Chinese nation", Wu Weiren, the chief designer of the Lunar Exploration Project, told state broadcaster CCTV, in a twist of US astronaut Neil Armstrong's famous comment when he became the first human to walk on the moon in 1969.
According to Fred Watson of the Australian Astronomical Observatory, the development represented a step in the right direction. NASA and the European Space Agency have scheduled the launches of their Mars surface rovers for that same time frame.
