The late and great Gene Shoemaker once said “The Moon is is this slate that nobody s been erasing. The record that were are seeing of bombardment ,,,all of those craters that we see on the Moon, of the flux,of the hail of bullets coming by that’s hitting both the Earth and the Moon. If we want to see what a very fresh,big impact looks like when it’s first formed. You look at the Moon.That guy up there! “.
I don’t think I could have said it any better!!.
