Latest Lunar craters Stories
NASA’S Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft has spied a new crater on the lunar surface; one made from the impact of NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) mission.
Citizen scientists are just as good as real scientists when it comes to identifying craters on the moon, according to researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder.
Scientists have long believed that the moon’s trademark craters were created from the impact of massive asteroids, but new research suggests that smaller planetoids might actually have been responsible for pummeling the lunar surface.
NASA-funded researchers, using data from the space agency's Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3) instrument aboard the Indian Space Research Organization's Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft, have detected magmatic water, or water that originates from deep within the lunar interior.
Researchers from NASA and the University of New Hampshire believe they have shed a light on the cosmic activity occurring on the dark side of the moon.
After spending nearly a year in lunar orbit studying the moon’s interior, two NASA spacecraft, known as GRAIL A (Ebb) and GRAIL B (Flow), were ordered to embark on a final mission that would hopefully give scientists one last bit of data about the moon’s composition.
The book â€œGetting a Feel for Lunar Cratersâ€ features tactile diagrams of the lunar surface.
GREENBELT, Md., Sept.
The moon was bombarded by two distinct populations of asteroids or comets in its youth, and its surface is more complex than previously thought.
