Our electrically scarred Moon

our-electrically-scarred-moon

Half-a-century ago, at the height of the Cold War, the Space Race between two competing superpowers set mankind on an accelerated path toward placing a man on the Moon. In addition to its geopolitical significance, the Moon was central in the evolution of planetary science.

The discoveries of the Apollo missions sparked debates and helped solidify new consensus theories about the Solar System’s history. In more recent years, many surprising discoveries have challenged scientists' long held ideas about the Moon's history.

Today, we begin exploring the evidence that high-energy electrical discharge events in the past have defined the lunar surface.
