The post, written in first person, said: "I walked a little bit forward today. Walking on the moon is much more difficult than walking on the earth. I have to watch out for craggy rocks, craters, low gravity and soft soil to avoid slipping. I stopped at the crater, waiting for instructions," said rover Yutu-2, My mission is to explore the land full of meteor craters. Before working, let’s listen to 'Dark Side Of The Moon' by Pink Floyd."

Rover Yutu-2 also shared its favorite lyrics in Floyd’s song:
"Run, rabbit run
Dig that hole, forget the sun
And when at last the work is done
Don't sit down it's time to dig another one"
