It’s a gas, man! - MyMoon

NASA and MyMoon have teamed up to blog about everything lunar. Art, literature, music, movies, science, and everything in between!

All quiet on the twitter front.


The Institute's Paul Spudis talks about an intriguing feature on the lunar surface dubbed "Ina".

There are times when seemingly unrelated discoveries about other planets come forward to enlighten us about the history and processes of the Moon. A recent paper, using data from the orbiting MESSENGER mission mapping Mercury, describes a number of newly discovered rimless pits and depressions. These pits (called hollows by the mission team) are difficult to explain by impact processes and are hypothesized to be the products of outgassing from the planet’s interior. They are often associated with color anomalies (which implies compositional differences from the surrounding terrain) and frequently found on the floors of impact craters and basins. Read more.
