The evolution of the moon


Today’s Video of the Day from NASA Goddard features an amazing look at the evolution of the moon. 

The history of the moon has been reconstructed by NASA scientists based on data obtained by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

The moon is thought to have emerged 4.5 billion years ago, about 60 million years after the birth of our Solar System, and not long after the Earth was formed.
