Patrick Stewart bids Earth goodbye, dressed as China’s dying moon rover (video)

You might have heard the news that China landed a rover on the moon. Unfortunately, their lunar rover, named Jade Rabbit, has a technical malfunction, and is facing imminent death. Well, actor Patrick Stewart, of Star Trek fame, dressed up as the rover and bid Earth farewell in a short clip on Jon Stewart.

Before we get to that, Jade Rabbit has been tweeting, and tweeted a rather touching goodbye:

Although I should’ve gone to bed this morning, my masters discovered something abnormal with my mechanical control system. My masters are staying up all night working for a solution. I heard their eyes are looking more like my red rabbit eyes. Nevertheless, I’m aware that I might not survive this lunar night.

If this journey must come to an early end, I am not afraid. Whether or not the repairs are successful, I believe even my malfunctions will provide my masters with valuable information and experience.

The sun has already set here and the temperature is falling very quickly. I’ve said a lot today, yet still feel like it’s not enough. I’ll tell everyone a secret. Actually, I’m not feeling especially sad. Just like any other hero, I’ve only encountered a little problem while on my own adventure.

Good night, planet Earth. Good night, humanity.
