Early reports of a successful landing by the robotic probe, Chang’e 4, ended in confusion after state-run media China Daily and CGTN deleted tweets celebrating a successful mission. China Daily’s tweet said: ‘“China’s Chang’e 4 landed on the moon’s far side, inaugurating a new chapter in mankind’s lunar exploration history.”
At the weekend, the probe entered an elliptical path around the moon, drawing as close as 15km (9 miles) from the surface. China’s mission control has not confirmed a time for the touchdown attempt but reports in state-run media suggested it would be early Thursday morning UK time.
Spacecraft have taken pictures of the moon’s far side before, but no lander has ever touched down there.
“For example, breed differences in aggression are associated with multiple genes that have been linked to aggressive behavior in humans. Molecular associations with breed differences in energy include genes previously linked to resting heart rate, daytime rest, and sleep duration in humans. Lastly, breed differences in fear were associated with genes linked with temperament and startle response in humans, and several of the genes implicated in breed differences in trainability have been previously associated with intelligence and information processing speed in humans.”
You can’t say any of these things without detailed understanding of the causal mechanisms, just as we could not eat anything until we’d learned that edible sugars are right-handed molecules while amino acids are left-handed.

So irresponsible from @mcfaul. Between 150,000-220,000 Americans visit Russia every year. The chances of a tourist being hit by a car are multiple times higher than those of being arrested for spying.
