The Chinese Rover, Yutu-2, was deployed in a huge crater called von Karman on the far side of the Moon and confirmed the idea of its origin. The results of the mission will help resolve the ancient secrets of the formation and evolution of the moon. Patrick Pinet of the Research Institute for Astrophysics and Planetary Science (IRAP) said that the results are "fascinating".
He told the BBC: "They can have significant consequences for characterizing the composition of the upper mantle of the moon."
"It is extremely important to make progress in unpacking the geology of the lunar far side, expanding our fundamental knowledge of the formation of the moon and the origin of the asymmetry of the crust that exists between its near and far sides, and preparing future missions with the return of samples.
The mission of China was the first time that an unmanned aircraft came into contact with the so-called "dark side of the moon" ̵
t where the planted Chinese probe was created by the blow of asteroids billions of years ago.

Scientists have found that the impact was so great that it broke through the earth's crust, revealing a layer of lunar mantle below, reports the BBC.
The researchers tried to understand what makes up the mantle between the bark and the core.
Astronomers believe that the discovery of magma closed the surface of the moon in early history, which would mean that minerals would swim to the summit. Professor Li Chunglai wrote in a study published in the wild: "Understanding the composition of the lunar fire is critical for verifying the existence of an ocean of magma as it was supposed.
"It also contributes to our understanding of the thermal and magmatic evolution of the Moon.
Samples of data collected by the rover showed traces of olivine both on the crust and on the lunar mantle.
Researchers consider the possibility of recovery
However, they said that it will be necessary to gather more material to confirm these early interpretations
