Chinese Scientists Help Solve 

Riddle Of Moon's Largest Crater

It was based on

 data collected by China's Chang'e-4 probe, which was launched on December 8, 2018,

The scientists found

 that it contains an unexpectedly high amount of material normally found on the lunar crust

The crustal material

 may have remained behind after the original impact that formed the basin,

Scientists developed a mineral

 abundance model showing the relationship between the moon's main components: plagioclase, pyroxene and olivine.

The moon's upper

 layer consists of a lunar crust formed of plagioclase,

"These analyses highlight

 the significance of plagioclase and crustal materials in mineralogical investigations

The country aims

 to launch its Chang'e-6 probe to collect samples from the basin around 2024.
