Just a quick correction, where the passage on the HAKUTO-R Moon Landing says “chang’e is Chinese for jade rabbit,” Chang’e is, in fact, a female deity who is fated to spend eternity on the moon. In her company is a rabbit pounding out the elixir of immortality. These are perhaps the two most common bits of Chinese moon lore, hence their use in naming the Chinese lander and rover.
