The Japanese Aerospace Agency (JAXA) announced today that the Japanese lunar probe has once again entered sleep mode, halting its activities at sunset, making solar power generation unavailable.

Xinhua quoted JAXA as saying: The planned activities for the smart lunar exploration vehicle Slim, which made Japan the fifth country in the world to land on the moon, concluded yesterday.

The lunar landing vehicle began work last Monday after it was shut down due to the failure of the solar cells following its landing on the moon earlier.
