On the moon found a strange gelatinous substance

Chinese lunar Rover Yutu-2

When 28 July 2019, the Chinese lunar Rover Yutu-2 was preparing to sleep, researchers from the Beijing aerospace control center flight found on images with the main camera of the Rover mysterious gel-like substance that the only picture which stirred the scientific world in August of this year. What exactly can be a mysterious substance and where it came from on the dark side of the moon?

As the portal , the Chinese lunar Rover “Yutu-2” — the world's first lunar Rover, which was able to successfully prionitis to the dark side of our satellite. To ensure that the apparatus was able to protect themselves from overheating during the lunar day, the experts decided to temporarily put to sleep a Rover near one of the craters, which had discovered a mysterious substance, is markedly different in color from the surrounding grey substance of the moon — the regolith.

According to experts, the mysterious substance may be dark glass, which was formed as a result of high speed impact of a meteorite on the dusty surface of the moon. It is known that meteorites can transform the minerals in the shiny glass refracting the light. Dan Moriarty, an employee of the Postdoctoral program, NASA space flight Center Goddard noted that the material embedded in the larger dark region, which may indicate on its mineralogical origin.

By the Way, discovered discovery is not the only lunar mystery. Thus, opening on the natural satellite of the Earth podlinnykh network of mysterious tunnels and caves can not only shed light on the origin of the moon, but could one day help astronauts to build the first space base.

Despite the fact that the main purpose of the mission of the Chinese lunar Rover Yutu-2 is the study of the chemical composition of lunar rocks and soil, and studies in the field of radio astronomy and the observation of solar activity and cosmic radiation, experts from the Beijing control center promise to give more information about the detected substances immediately after the release of the Rover from the day of “hibernation”. In other words, in the near future one lunar mystery may be less.
