NASA scientists baffled by mystery 'rocket body' crash that caused Moon crater

NASA says they are no closer to knowing what the “mystery rocket body” that collided with the moon’s surface earlier this year actually is.

The space agency have been left baffled after discovering the crash site back in March.

They say the impact left behind a widespread “double crater” which was found by its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter – and that means it wasn’t an average rocket.

NASA say they know something crashed into the moon on March 4, but it still remains unidentified nearly four months on.

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