The Chinese rover, Yutu-2, was deployed in a large mouth, named Von Karman, on the far side of the Moon and confirmed the ideas of its origin. Discoveries from the mission will help solve mysterious mysteries about the formation and evolution of the moon. Patrick Pinet, from the Research Institute of Astrophysics and Planetology (IRAP) said the findings were "shocking".
He told the BBC: "They may have great implications for identifying the composition of the Moon's top coat. It is important to make progress toward moon geological unpacking away, extend our primary the development of the Moon and the source of crustal asymmetry that exists between its near and far side, and preparing future sample-return missions. "
China's mission is the first time that a non-lunar landlord has been in contact with the so-called & # 39; dark parts of the Moon & # 39; ̵

But the mission discovered by scientists that the impact was so great that broke through the Moon's crust that reveals the layer of the lunar coat below, the BBC reported.
Researchers are trying to understand what made the coat which is between the crust and core, reported by CNN Astronomers believe that the opening of magma covers the Moon's surface in early history that the Minerals are floating above.
They explained that minerals may be olivine and pyroxene found in the upper mantle of the Earth.
Professor Li Chunlai wrote in a study published in Nature: "Understanding the composition of the lunar coat is critical for testing if a magma of oceans exists, as being plotted."
"Assists it also understands the thermal and magmatic evolution of the moon. "
Sample data collected by the rover showed traces of olivine in both crust and lunar mantle.
Researchers are contemplating the possibility of retuing samples on Earth.
However , they say that more materials are needed to gather these early interpretations.
