NASA’s Mark Sirangelo argues that, under the old plan (2028 crewed landing), most international contributions would not have come until after 2024 anyway; with this accelerated plan, we’re helping them by giving them a place to design from.

Here's a map of Yutu-2's drive route in Von Kármán crater, created by Phil Stooke of the University of Western Ontario. Day 5 is tentative & day 4 still approximate due to lack of available info, but excellent work, using released Chang'e-4 mission images.
