NASA  is still baffled after the mystery 'rocket body' crashes into  the moon

Experts at NASA continue to be baffled after a mystery "rocket body" collided with the moon's surface earlier this year. The space agency found the crash site back in March.

The mysterious double crater on the moon's surface, located by NASA

According to NASA, the impact left behind a widespread "double crater" which was found by its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter - meaning it was not an average rocket. NASA knows something crashed into the moon on March 4, but exactly what that something was still remains unknown nearly four months on.

What was the impact left by the rocket body on the moon's surface?

Some specifications of the crash

The crash was spotted near the huge Hertzsprung crater on the far side of the moon. NASA experts know it was traveling at roughly 5,7000mph when it struck.

Statement of NASA

''The double crater was unexpected and may indicate that the rocket body had large masses at each end," NASA announced.

Further it stated

"Since the origin of the rocket body remains uncertain, the double nature of the crater may indicate its identity."

So what hit the moon still remains a mystery........

It was previously thought that the hit could have been a leftover from China's Xichang Satellite Launch Center's 2014 launch of a Long March 3C rocket. That rocket took China's Chang'e 5-T1 spacecraft to the moon. However, scientists have ruled that out - so what hit the moon stays a mystery.
