Moon Ocean of Storms has a clear edge rectangular polyline, NASA scientists believe that it is not formed in a celestial collision
According to foreign media reports, NASA scientists discovered the mystery of the moon on the ocean storm formation, which is a region located on the moon, has a rough outline, the original studies suggest that the formation of the Ocean of Storms from the asteroid impact, if this theory is correct, then the Moon basin formed thereby also from the asteroid impact, thus introduce more asteroid impacts associated with the formation mechanism of the lunar terrain, and therefore determine the Ocean of Storms formed from research in favor of impact craters on the moon type But NASA Gravity Recovery and Internal Laboratory (GRAIL) probes mission specialists found new evidence that the Ocean of Storms formed not from the impact, but the results of the lunar evolution of ancient rift.
Moon Ocean of Storms formed around the rugged contours, spans about 1,600 miles, that is 2600 km, which is located close to the Earth side of the moon, the terrain is characterized by lower elevations to more ancient volcanic plains. In fact, our side of the moon near the planet a lot of observation and research, also found that the distribution of lunar magma flow inside the system, leading researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology scientist Maria Zuber also NASA GRAIL mission She thought we noticed the presence of the moon magma system trails gravity anomaly part, this is because the ancient lunar volcanic eruption of lava into the underground passage near the ground, and the distribution of the location of these rifts in the area covered by lava, Therefore, we found that they can be by gravity anomalies.
Scientists also discovered on the moon magma inside the submerged ancient rift formation mechanism and other celestial bodies in the solar system is somewhat different, such as rift zone we found on Mars and Venus on a distinction, but we can still reveal anomalies of gravity data rectangle patterns. The theory of the impact that the previous scientists is contrary, that the latter is formed from Ocean storm celestial collision, as such tend to form a circular impact shock structure, and has sharp edges Ocean storm fold, indicating that Another strength is the formation of the Ocean of Storms.
Although the Ocean of Storms rift Mars, Venus and other celestial bodies are different, but scientists have found very striking similarities in the structure of Enceladus south pole region, where there are huge giant terrain, so these two regions are subject to their own internal volcano and tectonic movements influence. Scientists believe we uncover the history of lunar gravity data, showing the moon’s interior more dynamic, probing the distribution of values GRAIL lunar gravity detector in December 2012 ended the mission, the task for the scientists to learn about the solar system, rocky the formation and evolution of celestial chance.
