On the social media, this strange object has been termed ‘mystery house’. Scientists are likely to get the rover closer to it for better view and investigation.
This object was found in the photos that were released last week by China’s Space Agency. According ‘space.com’, the Chinese moon rover spotted this strange object while traveling across the Von Karman crater at the far side of the moon.
Image of a cubic shape was observed on the northern horizon, 80m away from the rover in Von Karman crater. Most space scientists have opined that it's not a monument of aliens on the moon. But the object needs further exploration and investigation.
Most probable explanation about the mysterious object is that it may be a boulder that was excavated upon impact.
In 2019, Yutu-2 had similarly discovered a ‘green coloured gel like substance’ on the moon. Later it was ascertained to be some rocks that form when minerals and rocks get fused together. The rover had also spotted a ‘shard’ on the lunar surface recently, which also turned out to be a rock.
The Yutu-2 rover is part of the Chinese moon mission. Since 2019 it is exploring the far side of the Moon. According to ‘space.com’, the image with the strange object was shared in a Yutu-2 diary posted by ‘Our Space’, a space news channel related to the China National Space Administration (CNSA).
