Mysterious objects found under moon's largest crater

Staff writer

Researchers at Baylor University in the United States have detected an unusual mass under the pole of the moon's surface.

The mysterious mass sits more than 186 miles below the desolate luna surface, of what is the largest crater in the Solar System. The impact crater can't be seen with telescopes, has it's on the far-side of the moon, and it always faces away from the Earth.

While, the researchers who discovered the objects don't know what it is or how it got there, simulations suggest that, it may be a large iron-nickel core from an astroid that, hit the moon -embedding itself almost 4 million years ago.
