What the Moon Can Tell Us About Earth

From a story on axios.com by Miriam Kramer headlined “What the moon can tell us about Earth”:

The Moon is a time capsule that could provide key information about Earth’s ancient history.

Why it matters: Understanding the early history of our planet and our Moon could help scientists figure out more about how the planets formed and even how life eventually took hold on our world.

  • “When you look at the Moon, you’re looking at not just a neighbor in space, but kind of an extension of the Earth,” NASA Moon scientist Noah Petro tells Axios.
