Why is landing on the dark side of the moon historic?
Prior to Chang'e-4's landing on the dark side of the moon on January 3, spacecraft had only viewed the dark side. No spacecraft had ever landed on it.

Why is the dark side of the moon called so?
Owing to the moon being tidally locked to the Earth, we can only see one side of the moon i.e. the near side, while the far side remains completely obscured from view. Hence, it is called the dark side of the moon.
