From naval expeditions in search of new lands to our first foray into space, technology is humanity’s only limit to exploration. And although the US has put a man on the moon, China recently became the first country to “land” on the dark side of the moon – where it just discovered a “mysterious hut”.
China’s solar-powered Yutu 2 (Yutu 2) probe photographed the cube-shaped object in October while exploring the Von Kármán crater.
According to CBS News, it was China’s National Space Administration that described the object as a “mysterious hut” or “mysterious house” when China’s science channel Our Space announced the discovery in January. December 3, 2021.
The press office of the China National Space Administration (CNSA) released a photo of the object on the horizon against a dark background. However, it is difficult to clearly determine the details and nature of the object from the photo above.
According to Space, the rover has begun traveling northwest of the Moon’s surface to take pictures and analyze its findings since it first landed on the dark side of the Moon on January 3. 2019.
Equipped with ground-penetrating radar sensors and panoramic cameras, the Yutu 2 probe detected the strangely shaped anomalous object 80 meters away on the 36th day of its mission – May 29. 10, 2021. The image captured is the contrast of an extremely uniform horizon and a strange structure jutting out of it, surprising experts.
Since then, scientists have redirected the rover toward the object to learn more. However, Yutu 2 will take two to three months to reach the best viewing position, because the craft is solar powered, it will turn off when the sun shines directly overhead to protect the ship from damage. overheating – and “hibernation” in the absence of light.
However, experts say that, rather than being a sign of an advanced civilization, it seems that this “mysterious hut” is likely a giant rock.
This structure is located near a sizable crater, leading experts to believe that the “mysterious tent” is the result of tectonic processes, it was raised from below during a meteor impact event. . While no one can know for sure until Yutu 2 arrives to examine the object in more detail, many still think this could be an alien work or structure that has never been seen before. known.
In fact, this is not the first strange object discovery by Yutu2, since it was sent to the Moon, it has made a number of fascinating discoveries during its lengthy examination of the Moon. his many years. For example, in August 2019, it encountered a substance that China describes as “gel-like”. However, upon approach and sampling it turned out to be glassy material produced by a collision event. Then in February 2021, another strange discovery was made when Yutu 2 found an elongated series of rock fragments described as “milestones” – however, these are once again objects. can be generated by geological impacts and collisions.
