1 day ago - The Moon is shrinking – and shaking as it does, according to new Nasa data. Over the last decade, scientists have established that as the ...

"We found that a number of the quakes recorded in the Apollo data happened very close to the faults seen in the LRO imagery," said Nicholas Schmerr, an assistant professor of geology at the University of Maryland, in a statement.

"It's quite likely that the faults are still active today. You don't often get to see active tectonics anywhere but Earth, so it's very exciting to think these faults may still be producing moonquakes."


Very interesting stuff. Perhaps a moon colony would not be a safe venture.

Yes one collision will end all chances space travel debris will isolate the planet.
