Interior of the Moon Has Not Yet Cooled and Hardened
Posted by Guy Pirro on 8/29/2014 9:07 AM
An international research team, led by Dr. Yuji Harada of the China University of Geosciences has found that there is an extremely soft layer deep inside the Moon and that heat is effectively being generated by the gravity of the Earth. These results were derived by comparing the deformation of the Moon as precisely measured by JAXA's Kaguya and other space probes with theoretically calculated estimates. These findings suggest that the interior of the Moon has not yet cooled and hardened, and also that it is still being warmed by the tidal effect of the Earth on the Moon. This research provides a chance to reconsider how both the Earth and the Moon have been evolving since their births through mutual influence until now.
