China Rover Discovers ‘Mystery Cube’ On Dark Side Of Moon

Yutu 2 spotted the strange cube-shaped object about 262 feet away to the north. A zoomed-in image provides a closer view of the object.

The Chinese have called the cube-shaped object the ‘mystery hut.’ The rover will take 2-3 lunar days (2-3 Earth months) to arrive at the object.

CNSA has shown strong interest in investigating this mystery object. There’s no definitive answer of what it could be. Some have speculated it’s a boulder from a meteor impact.

Twitter users joked it could be anything from a Mcdonald’s to a Moon Nazi base.
