Mysterious ‘House’ Spotted On The Moon To Be Investigated By China


China are sending their rover Yutu-2 to investigate a mysterious ‘house’ spotted on the moon.

Andrew Jones, a journalist tracking China’s space programme, tweeted confirming the news.

Ah. We have an update from Yutu-2 on the lunar far side, including an image of a cubic shape on the northern horizon ~80m away from the rover in Von Kármán crater. Referred to as “神秘小屋” (“mystery house”), the next 2-3 lunar days will be spent getting closer to check it out.

The journalist also shared the drive diary with the image, ‘explaining how the rover and drive team carefully navigated between craters, as it makes its way northwest from its landing site and towards a distant basaltic region of interest to team scientists’.
