Submission + - NASA: Moon's Scars Tell Its Tale

An anonymous reader writes: It turns out the moon is similar to an aging prize fighter. Its weary face gives away its somewhat rough history. According to new research from NASA and California Institute of Technology, the moon's damages which lay all across its rough surface give scientists an idea of its four-and-a-half billion year history. The scientists say the moon's impact craters, dark plains left behind by volcanic eruptions give them an idea of how it was shaped.
