Chinas first nuclear battery moon rover

Chinas first Moon rover will be powered by a home-built nuclear battery, the chief scientist of the Chinas lunar project said.
The rover will land on moon next year on board Change-3, Chinas third lunar probe, Shanghai Daily reported. The Change-3 is expected to be launched from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest Sichuan Province.
