NASA has released an interesting geolologic map of moon.
NASA’s got something new for the geo-geeks in the house: a bedrock geologic map of Schrodinger Basin, a giant crater near the moon’s south pole that formed from a collision with a space rock 21-25 miles in diameter.
The green areas are huge swaths of melted material, while the black lines running through them are fractures formed as the whole hot mess cooled. Later on, smaller objects slammed into the crater and created their own mini-areas of devastation, highlighted here in yellow.
One of the things that makes Schrodinger interesting are the red and beige patches: evidence of some of the most recent volcanic activity near the moon’s south pole. The beige are lava flows, while the red — the youngest rocks pictured here — are deposits from explosive eruptions.
