China’s Yutu 2 has been sent to explore a mysterious object on the moon, which the rover spotted while travelling across the Von Kármán crater on the far side of the lunar surface.

Scientists who spotted the shape were keen to send the rover to have a closer look at what appeared to be a cube shape some 80 metres from the module. Dubbed as the “mystery house” by the China National Space Administration (CNSA), the module will spend the next two or three lunar days taking a closer look.
