“Moon Anomaly” -Massive Blob Detected Buried Under Solar System’s Largest Impact Crater

China’s Chang’e-4 mission


On Jan. 3, 2019, the Chinese spacecraft Chang’e 4 (above) safely landed on the Far Side floor of the Moon’s Von Kármán crater, naming the site, “Milky Way Base.” Located within an even larger four-billion-year-old impact crater known as the South Pole–Aitken basin roughly 2,500 kilometers in diameter and 13 kilometers deep –the largest impact crater in the Solar System –it now appears that the “Milky Way Base” sits atop of an abnormally massive blob buried deep below.

China's Chang'E probe


China’s fourth Chang’E probe (CE-4) was the first mission to land on the far side of the moon, and it has collected new evidence from the South Pole-Aitken Basin, the largest crater in the solar system, clarifying how the moon may have evolved providing a window into the evolution of Earth and other terrestrial planets because its surface is relatively untouched compared for example, to the early surface of Earth.
