Bhabha crater is located on the Moon's farside, deep within the South Pole–Aitken (SPA) basin. Its location means that the exposed material originally resided deep within the Moon, but was excavated and melted by the SPA impact event. @NASA  @ASU  @PlanetSci

Something caused a giant hole on the Moon billions of years ago, and astronomers believe there's something big underneath the surface. The Moon's South Pole-Aitken basin hides a mass that is estimated to be 4.8 quintillion pounds, researchers say.

The heavy core of a giant asteroid may be buried beneath the moon’s South Pole-Aitken basin.

China's Yutu-2 rover has discovered ancient rocks that confirm the Moon has a mantle below its crust. The samples were discovered in a small crater tucked in the Moon's largest crater, the 1,600-mile-wide South Pole-Aitken Basin.
