An object found on the surface of the moon that was dubbed a'mystery hut' is actually a rabbit-shaped rock, scientists have revealed. China's Yutu 2 rover spotted the object on the far side of the moon in December, thanks to its panoramic and infrared on-board cameras, and approached it for closer inspection. Now, the Yutu 2 team have confirmed that it is an oddly-shaped rock that they claim looks like a small but'lifelike' crouching bunny like a statue set in stone, surrounded by its own rocky'droppings' and morsels of food. The finding is a coincidence as the name of the rover, Yutu, happens to be Chinese for'Jade Rabbit'. China's Yutu 2 team say the an oddly-shaped rock looks like a small but'lifelike' crouching bunny like a statue set in stone, surrounded by its own rocky'droppings' and morsels of food Yutu-2 is the robotic lunar rover component of China's Chang'e 4 mission to the far side of the Moon.
