According to a press release by the agency, “This new discovery contributes to NASA’s efforts to learn about the Moon in support of deep space exploration.”

“Understanding the science of the Moon also helps piece together the broader history of the inner solar system,” NASA said.

NASA did not drop any more details about the said discovery, so we would just have to wait until then.
