The American space agency is apparently planning to send astronauts to moon's mysterious South Pole, which has been never explored by humans and this new mission is expected to unveil more secrets about this creepy area. "We know the South Pole region contains ice and may be rich in other resources based on our observations from orbit, but, otherwise, it's a completely unexplored world.
