NASA baffled by mysterious rocket that left two craters on moon

Published July 2, 2022


NBC Today reports that newly released photos show the damage from an unidentified rocket body that crashed into the moon’s surface and left an “unexpected” double crater. “We just don’t understand why it created a double crater,” said John Crassidis, SUNY Distinguished Professor in the UB Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, who was interviewed for the report. “I don’t know if that’s ever going to be explained to be honest with you.”
