When we think of fiction, the first thing that comes to mind is movies and video games. However, when such a fiction theory becomes true, the fans have a hard time controlling their emotions. This is what exactly happened to ‘Destiny’ video game lovers when the astronomers claimed a massive mass buried deep into the surface of the moon.
The study published in Geophysical Research Letters suggests that a mass, probably metal, is buried under the South Pole-Aitken basin. The depth is estimated to be 300 kilometers under the surface.
Destiny media team owned the Twitter platform as soon as the announcement was made.
Of course, the fans had a lot to say.
The trailer released by Destiny 2 shares an uncanny association with the recent developments. The trailer suggests nightmares emerging from the shadows of the forgotten moon. All in all, the timing played out to be great for the game.
To explain the origin of mass, astronomers believe it to be an asteroid crashing into the moon’s surface about 4 billion years ago. This mass is weighing down the moon by half a mile. Though it is not evident from Earth, the Destiny fans definitely have their vision to see and feel it.
