An “abnormal” or giant mass buried in the largest hole in our solar system is found on the dark side of the moon.

The crater is more than 1,200 miles long, four times the distance between London and Glasgow, several miles deep.

On Tuesday, NASA scientists have discovered massive mineral deposits that formed a mass below the crater.

“The amount of unexplored mass is estimated to be 5 times larger than Hawaii,” said Peter James, associate professor of planetary geophysics at Baylor College of Arts and Sciences.

“When we combined this with the lunar terrain data from the lunar survey orbit, we discovered an unexpectedly large amount of mass hundreds of miles under the Antarctic Basin,” James said.

The explanations for this extra mass were that the metal from the asteroid that shaped this hole was so dense that it weighed the bottom of the basin more than half a mile.

James pointed out: “We have made calculations and we have shown that the nucleus of the asteroid dispersed enough, which led to it remain suspended at the ends of the moon to this day instead of falling to the heart of the moon.”
