Map the time history of Moon
From Craters to Time
With the help from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft, which has measured the moon surface for over 2.4 Billion times with the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter since 2009, MIT researcher Maria Zuber along with her team has made a new breakthrough.
The team has measured all craters with diameter larger than 20 KM. The number is 5,185. Based on the size the craters, the age of moon can be estimated. The research is still ongoing.
