Today, CNN 10 heads to Japan, where that country became the fifth nation in history to land a spacecraft on the moon, but the mission may end earlier than expected, due to that lunar lander losing power. Then, we head to just outside of Hong Kong, where we go on a “nocturnal safari” with a photographer and find an array of wildlife creatures. And before you go, CNN 10 heads to the Windy City and explain why a rat-shaped hole on a Chicago sidewalk is turning into a tourist attraction. All that and more on this episode of CNN 10.
