American scientists were able to explain the cause of the appearance of light patterns on the surface of the moon.

It is known that the location of the & # 39; moon vortices & # 39; is associated with a magnetic anomaly, despite the fact that not every region of a strong magnetic field induced the appearance of patterns around itself. But due to the fact that the moon itself does not generate a worldwide magnetic field, the origin of the structures on the surface of the satellite remained a mystery. Because of the fact that the twists formed in a pattern that resembled a human face, they became indirectly & # 39; man on the moon & # 39; called.
Now, thanks to computer modeling, planetologists from Rutgers University could find out that the windings should appear at or above the source of the magnetic field below the surface of the satellite. These springs are not deep and represent vertical "lava tubes", which arise when the lava runs unevenly out of the volcanoes.

According to scientists, these basalt structures on the moon reach the age of three to four billion years. Planetologists believe that the "lava tubes" perfectly explain the cause of the appearance of patterns. When the moon rocks are heated to 600 degrees Celsius and cooled down, they acquire magnetic properties in the absence of oxygen. This process takes place because the high temperature provokes the destruction of minerals and the release of iron.
