The odd material was discovered in July by Yutu 2, which has traveled hundreds of meters across the lunar terrain since it was delivered to the Moon by the Chang’e-4 lander in January. Chang’e-4 is the first surface mission in history to explore the far side of the Moon.
…the enhanced pictures appear to corroborate previous suspicionsthat the material could be glass forged by meteorites crashing into the lunar surface, which would explain why it is the middle of a crater. It could also potentially be basaltic rock that originated from a time when the Moon was more volcanically active.
