Mysterious rocket from unknown origin crashes into moon: NASA

NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter recently captured new photographs that revealed a mysterious rocket crash into the far side of the moon, leaving a double crater in its wake.

Two overlapping impact sites were created by the collision, according to a news statement from NASA. A 59-foot crater and a 52.5-foot crater both exist.

After astrologers noticed an unknown space object headed toward the moon, they were already preparing for an impact. They did not anticipate a twin crater, though.

The space agency stated in the press release that "no other rocket body collisions on the moon generated double craters."

NASA claimed that a rocket with heavy masses on both ends could be the culprit behind the double crater.

NASA, however, noted that "a spent rocket has mass concentrated at the motor end; the remainder of the rocket stage consists primarily of an empty fuel tank."

However, the agency thinks that the mass on the rocket's two ends might be able to point them in the right direction.

In a blog post titled Project Pluto, Bill Gray, the astronomer who initially spotted the strange object and informed NASA

admitted: "I must confess that I'd stupidly imagined it would be easier to find and would have been located quickly after impact."

No nation or organisation has admitted any fault for the crash as of yet.
