Why is the far side of the moon so strange? Scientists may have solved a lunar mystery

The mysterious far side of the moon It is very different from its near side, which we see in the night sky, and now scientists think they know why.

The moons near the side and the far side were once thought to be relatively similar. But, with missions from robotic observers and Apollo astronauts over the past six decades, scientists discovered they have significantly different characteristics, many related to the geological activity of the moon. In fact, observations have shown that only about 1% of the far side of the moon is covered in mary or craters caused by volcanic activity in Moon. This strongly contrasts the near side of the object, 31% of which is covered in mary.
