Small ‘glass globules” have been found on the far side of the Moon by China’s lunar rover, Yutu-2.
The rover is part of the Chang’e 4 mission and has been on the Moon since January 2019.
The rover has been travelling across a crater on the far side of the Moon and has sent some amazing photos back to Earth.
Recently, scientists discovered 15-25mm across spherical glass globules.
Glass on the Moon isn’t uncommon. Glass forms when silicate material is subjected to high temperature and silicate is a common mineral in lunar rocks.
Lunar glass is thought to have formed from volcanic activity in the past, or a more recent meteorite impact.
The scientists hope the globules could give more information about the “early impact history” of the Moon.
