Study reveals lunar surface features younger than assumed

Academics / Astronomy : Physorg: Astronomy

The moon's surface is being "gardened"—churned by small impacts—more than 100 times faster than scientists previously thought. This means that surface features believed to be young are perhaps even younger than assumed. It also mean...
