After remaining in the shadows for decades, new audio between two Apollo 10 astronauts has been brought to the light, and it reveals “weird music” coming from the far side of the moon.

Huge Rock Crashes Into Moon, Sparks Giant Explosion

The moon has a new hole on its surface thanks to a boulder that slammed into it in March, creating the biggest explosion scientists have seen on the moon since they started monitoring it. The meteorite crashed on March 17, slamming into the lunar surface at a mind-boggling 56,000 mph (90,000 kph) and creating a new crater 65 feet wide (20 meters). The crash sparked a bright flash of light that would have been visible to anyone looking at the moon at the time with the naked eye, NASA scientists say.

Kepler Mission Reveals an Alien Planet Size of Earth's Moon

An international team of astronomers has used nearly three years of high precision data from NASA's Kepler spacecraft to make the first observations of a planet outside our solar system that's about the size of the Earth's moon. It is one of three planets orbiting a star designated Kepler-37 in the Cygnus-Lyra region of the Milky Way. The three planets orbiting Kepler-37 are smaller than the Earth while the third is twice Earth's size. Kepler-37b is about 80% the size of Mercury and is the first exoplanet to be found that is smaller than any planet in our own Solar System. Astronomers with the Kepler team are looking for earth-like planets that might be able to support life.
