On the moon found anomaly. What scientists say
The researchers found a magnetic anomaly at the south pole of the moon, which is explained by the remains of a giant asteroid, which is still “conserved” in the mantle of the Earth satellite.
About this informed the site Live Science. As it became known, a huge mass of metal lies below the surface of the crater South Pole – Aitken.
Experts note that this crater is located on the far side of the moon and is considered the largest crater of the solar system.
It was formed as a result of the impact of one of the heavenly bodies. Presumably, the asteroid crashed into the area of the moon about four billion years ago.
One of the researchers said that on the moon lies a pile of metal, which is five times larger than the Big Island in the Hawaiian Islands.
Giant metal blotches were discovered by researchers when comparing a topographic map of the moon with data collected during the implementation of one of the NASA programs.
